Ophrys fusca ssp fusca

Ophrys fusca ssp fusca Brown bee orchid

This little orchid flowers from February to May, and is native to the Mediterranean, north Africa and western Asia. It can grow to an height of 30cms and is found on pastures and olive groves. Ophrys fusca varies considerably, with many subspecies, and there are many types here on my blog. It is one of the first bee orchids to flower in the year.
