Orchids Austria
« on: December 19, 2010, 05:47:46 PM »
Here are couple of orchids photographed in Austria. The first is an Epipactis photographed in the Karawanken. It was photographed in the Obir range, on the Hochobir, on the road to the Eisenkappler Hütte in early July 2006. If anyone could tell me which species it is that would be  much appreciated.

Next are Epipactis atrorubens, Cephalanthera rubra and Gymnadenia odoratissima (with a much shorter spur than G. conopsea), all photographed at the same location.

And finally photographed in a meadow higher up on the same mountain is the endemic Nigritella lithopolitanica.

Wow, I really had to go very far to find info about orchids growing about 40km from the place I live! :P
And about Gerhard living 15 minutes from my place.... ;D
