Orchids of Samos (1 Viewer)


ἀρχός οἰ&#969
While people are waiting for the UK orchid season to get underway, perhaps they might enjoy reading about my recent trip to the Greek island of Samos, where I saw and photographed 27 different orchids (as well as over 20 butterfly species). By contrast with the UK, the Greek season appears to have started rather early due to a warm and wet winter.

Species include such gems as Ophrys leochroma, Ophrys mammosa, Ophrys herae, Ophrys regis-ferdinandii, as well as a good number of Orchis and Serapias. A picture below to whet your appetites... |8)|
