Wild Orchids – A Spanish Secret – The illusive ‘Lizard’ has been discovered …..


Up until yesterday we had discovered nine species of orchid, however the most illusive, the Lizard Orchid, was still  to be found.  Today, during a trip into the mountains, we can add two more orchids to the list – one of them being the ‘Lizard’.  Not seen at its best as this giant Lizard orchid was just going over, however I now know where to find them next year – and in abundance.  The secret, to go a bit higher, maybe around 1000 meters above sea level.  A very small delicate pink orchid can also be added to the list, which I have discovered is called the Pyramid Orchid.  There is still an orchid which remains unidentified, so if anyone knows the name of the last ones in this album, please feel free to enlighten me.
