Thanks - I'm not sure I quite understand but I will go with what you are saying - looks like I need to invest in another book - Wild Flower Key. I assume, then, that all my original photos are all Broad-leaved Helleborine?
Just to throw a slight curve ball - are you able to tell me if these...
I found a lot of Helleborine's at Sheepleas yesterday and checked all those in flower for possible Narrow-lipped Helleborine.
The majority appeared to be Broad-leaved Helleborine (if not all) but there is this one plant that looks very good for Narrow-lipped Helleborine.
It was tricky to get...
I spent some time at Oaken Wood (Surrey). I photographed a number of whites I assume were all Small White but then I got home and check my photos and think I have actually got photos of Wood White - they look good against the UK Butterflies pictures:

1. Broad-leaved Helleborine - I am going to try Sheepleas in Surrey
2. Narrow-lipped Helleborine - I am going to try Sheepleas in Surrey

I am led to believe reading various websites that there is a possibility of Pugsley's Marsh Orchids at Greywell Moors in Hampshire.
I went there on Saturday and certainly saw Southern Marsh Orchid.
Reading the various literature etc., I am wondering if these pictures (aad/aaf) are good...
I was photographing Heath Spotted Orchids in the New Forest (Broadway) and saw a couple of white orchids (first two photos)
I assumed they were a white form of Heath Spotted Orchid but could they be a white form of Common Spotted Orchid?
I then went onto Pig Bush in the New Forest where I...
I am still wading through my new flower books to find out what the following are but maybe someone can help:
1. Aston Clinton Ragpits (Bucks) 16th May
2. Homefield Wood (Bucks) 30th May
3. Beacon Hill (Hants) 31st May [ 2 pics]
I am new to identifying flowers
Can anyone identify the following pictures of what I think is an Orchid at Noar Hill (Hampshire) taken last weekend
I thought it was Common Spotted Orchid but the flowers are plain
In addition, can anyone identify these flowers which were photographed in Alice...
