Ok no more grebes for a bit, tho you will get more later :)

This Oprhys..laurensis, is endemic to Sicily and can be found on top of monte lauro, it's a timy plant, about 10 cm high and grown near little holes in the ground that are a bit swampy. They are quite abundant in the few locations they can be found
