[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
Ophrys picta and Ophrys scolopax are really two orchids very similar, they are mainly different in size,Ophrys picta is small and Ophrys scolopax is bigger than the average ophrys like Ophrys fusca . The problem is, usually, you don't find them together and it's difficult to get sure which one you are looking at.
In this case I had the oportunity to photograph them side by side and, as you can see, there's no doubt the difference is obvious.

A brilliant capture of two species of Ophrys in one go!
Congratulations! The colours and details are really wonderful.
I believe the markings of the flowers can differ greatly but the sizes are very obvious here.

Hi Luis,

Great shot of the two beautiful orchids, my favorite type of flowers. they do come in many different types and colors. Love the color combination in these. Excellent quality I like the softer texture of it without too much sharpening.
