[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This ophrys, also known as O. carbonifera ssp. biscutella, is endemic to S. Italy, and found mostly in the Gargano area. Its name come for the two shield-like patterns on its labellum. The species is far from uniform.

See several plants in the WS.

Hello Ishi,
This beautiful orchid certainly lives up to it's name, as the labellum really does resemble a shield. I love it's colors and the focus is tac sharp. Perfect exposure and composed in a attractive vertical frame work. Well done!!
