Orchid variety - Saarland area
02. 06. 16 15:23 filed in:Orchidaceae
Last weekend I had a chance to capture different orchids inside the nature reserve „Wolferskopf“.
Uta, a friend and homeopathic colleague, grew up in the area. She was guiding me through the meadows which were full of orchids at this time of the year.
Almost half of all types of orchids that occur in Germany can be found on the vast limestone semi-dry grasslands.
We were even lucky with the weather, as there was a lot of thunder and rain in the air.
