Orchis langei

Orchis langei Lange's orchid, hipocromatic form

March to June

This one was taken at Sierra de las Nieves in late May 2009. I have been back since to try and find these 3 orchids (there were 3 in a group), but I have never seen them again. Hipocromatic means a white form, lack of pigment, in fact it is a form of anaemia in plants.
