Bee orchids at Ranmore (4)
On 12th June 2014 I was surprised to find bee orchids growing on the North Downs scarp at Ranmore - not having seen them here for many years. This photo was taken on a return visit, five days later.

I'm posting this particular shot because I feel it captures the almost translucent quality of bee orchids as seen in the field - photographic images too often give an impression of waxiness.
