Sierra Blanca, Andalucia, April 2010


I was really happy to have found these orchids during a walk through a mountain woodland.  I didn't know they were there so I patted myself on the back as they are small and often in shade under conifers, as here.  These are the cream or Irish type of dense flowered orchid I was so close to findning a few years ago on a trip to the Burren in County Clare.  A few weeks later I found another colony close to some Man orchids.  This time they were the usual continental variety with a pink to purplish spotted look.
