[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ophrys israelitica s the first orchid to bloom here. This year, as we have had much rani, this Bee Orchid has started blooming quite early. So far only a few specimens are open.

This is not a very showy orchid; the lip is less than one cm long. the entire plant is usually not more than 10 cm tall (see WS).

Hello Ishi
Wonderful photo of O.israelitica with excellent detail. It is the first orchid to flower with us as well, usually before the end of December.
Strangely it is still flowering at the same place until the middle of March.
regards yiannis
