an orchid and another...
« on: April 11, 2009, 19:53 PM »
Hola,
Very excited today to find our first orchid at Los Gazquez, but can anyone tell me what it is?
We also found a pink flower which we would love to identify. Has anyone any ideas?

Hi there,

First one is Ophrys lutea a yellow bee orchid... Do you have any other angles of the pink one... It looks a bit like a centaurea maybe?

Thanks for the orchid ID. Centaurea possibly not as I Google imaged your suggestion but the results didn't match. It has a leaf somewhat like a dandylion. I'll look up some other angles. Thanks again.
