[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Back to orchids from Sicily.

During the last rainy days the first flowers of O. branchiforti opened. At some point I got luck on the slopes of the etna and found a nearly white one. It's a beautiful littel flower reminding me a bit of the O. quadripuntata that i saw in lesvos 2 years ago. If you look carefully you can see some raindrops on the flowers...south of italy..nice weather..well not for me :)

enjoy your weekend

Hallo Jeroen,
Ik vind het wonderbaarlijk hoe je al die verschillen tussen die kleine orchideesoorten uit elkaar kunt houden.
Prima foto in mooie natuurlijke kleuren en goede scherpte. Uitstekend contrasterende achtergrond. Genomen vanuit een goed standpunt.
Goed weekend,
