Pink Butterfly Orchid Orchis papilionacea

This orchid was found in the large park west of Madrid, Casa de Campo, this one specimen as sitting right down low to the ground in amongst weeds and grasses.  This image is a 36 frame stack, being down low helped with the wind.

Lovely image of the O. papilionacea with fine stacked detail.
These small orchids tend to be ground huggers...makes photographing them with increasing age a challenge ;)
