Bee Orchids, Gwent Wildlife Trust

Bee Orchid, Ophrys apifera, flower macro

I was on a mission to find, let alone photograph, Bee Orchids last year when Keith Allen, a warden from Gwent Wildlife Trust offered to show me a site where he knew they were flowering. Jumping at the chance I headed over to Monmouthshire, Wales where besides the trail in a tiny nature reserve Keith pointed out several of these small, striking plants. A selection of images from the mornings shoot were donated to the Trust, one of which now illustrates their Reserves Guide.
