Interesting day today with the Box Hill Volunteers, we spotted some interesting orchids… the rare butterfly orchid
and as a bonus extra, a birds nest orchid… this is in full flower and you can see the pollen on the flowers – but it seems devoid of chlorophyll, and apparently derives its energy from a symbiotic relationship with some fungi


I saw this, as yet, unnamed orchid – perhaps a man orchid, but I’m not sure…

and finally… a white Helleborine (Cephalanthera damasonium)
