Rhodos is one of the favorite destinations for orchids and specially Ophrys species. This reinholdii is quite common, but i'd not found one with a monkey face on the lip before

Lovely specimen, indeed! Could it be a hybrid?

I'd love to return to Rhodes!

All the best, Jeroen,


Lovely shot and beautiful orchid.
