The current heatwave has forced us to seek temporary refuge at high altitudes, where thankfully some orchids cans till be found like this Gymnadenia species known for its fine odour.
I couldn't resist taking them in bright sunlight with hint of cool snow capped mountains in the background.

Thanks for stopping by - have great day.

Lovely lighting- I like the soft background too. Would not have guessed it was snow! Hot and cold! Really pretty.

The sunlight from behind suits the flowers, providing contrast and color.
