Anacamptis pyramidalis with Empis tessellata
I think that Empis tessellata is a pollinator to Anacamptis pyramidalis.
A pollinator is the biotic agent (vector) that moves pollen from the male anthers of a flower to the female stigma of a flower to accomplish fertilization or 'syngamy' of the female gamete in the ovule of the flower by the male gamete from the pollen grain. Though the terms are sometimes confused, a pollinator is different from a pollenizer, which is a plant that is a source of pollen for the pollination process. Anthecology is the scientific study of pollination.

Bonjour Luis,
Agréable valorisation du sujet mais la profondeur de champ ne me paraît pas très bonne ; il me semble que le visiteur présente plus de finesse que la fleur.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
