Ophrys fusca

Ophrys fusca Sombre bee orchid

This Orchid is widespread in the Mediterranean, from Portugal to Turkey. It flowers from February to April, and can often be missed as it hides away sometimes, under oak trees and in among bushes. It is usually from 15~30cms tall. This one has unusual markings, but the O. fuscas do vary considerably. Photographed 16.3.2015 Montejaque.
