|Thank you for the info, Ori and Vinny - this is Aquilegia species.|
From the five, long spurs this looks to me to be the bud of an Aquilegia species - not related to orchids but part of the buttercup family. I'm not sure of the exact species - they are popular garden plants with many different hybrids, many of which escape into the wild.
It looks like there wasn't much light when you took the shot, as the resulting image is soft and grainy. It may well have needed flash of some bring the details out more sharply.
nice, not an orchid, brobably an aquilegia, pitty it is not sharp enough, TFS Ori
