How very nice, Michael!

Due to the very late arrival of the rains n Israel, we'll have to wait another month or so before we spot our first orchid.

All the best,

Hi Michael,
Very lovely to see this beautiful orchid. Here in Holland we can only see these orchids in a greenhouse. It is to cold here for these flowers at wintertime. Good 3 shots showing the surroundings and the close-up with the details

Geia sou Michali,
Nice presentation of Ophrys israelitica. This is an early flowering indeed. Best wishes, Pambos

Good to see the beginning of the new season despite the late rains. regards Yiannis
