Clearly, they are both Flora.

On the left is probably a:
Common Spotted Orchid
Urach bhallach
Dactylorhiza fuchsii

On the right might be:
Greater butterfly-orchid
Mogairlean an dealain-dè mòr
Platanthera chlorantha


@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.


The Greater is fairly common, but, nothing like as abundant as the Spotted. There is also a Lesser, which looks the same, only smaller. 😃
