@wim_v12e Florence and Flora 🤭
@athairbirb Clearly, they are both Flora.
On the left is probably a:Common Spotted OrchidUrach bhallachDactylorhiza fuchsii
On the right might be:Greater butterfly-orchidMogairlean an dealain-dè mòrPlatanthera chlorantha
@fitheach @athairbirb Thank you both!
@fitheach @athairbirb In your area, is Greater butterfly-orchid common? I only saw one on my walk, that's why I called it "rare" but of course that is relative.
@wim_v12e The Greater is fairly common, but, nothing like as abundant as the Spotted. There is also a Lesser, which looks the same, only smaller. 😃
