Most probably Orchis mascula, although the macro does not show the labella very well.

Certainly looks like the Early Purple Orchid. I the woodland around our garden there are litterally 100's of them (upwards of 500-600) and they are stunning. Think you needed a greater DOF than F/2.0 to do it justice though.... and if you return this weekend, it should be in full flower... nice ctach of light and also shows the woodland well as well...
(PS My personal theme for them (out of interest)).
