Western Granada Province.

A look for some Hybrid Orchids.

Dark Spider Orchid (Ophrys incubacea).
During the day I had a quick look at a spot not to far from the house where last year Juan Pérez Contreras found a nice colony of over 300 spikes of Bumblebee Orchid (Orquídea abejorro / Ophrys bombyliflora) and in amongst the two hybrids between it and Sawfly Orchid (Flor de avispa / Ophrys tenthredinifera subsp tenthredinifera) called Ophrys x sommieri. The Bumblebee's were flowering along with lots of Yellow Bee (Orquídea Abejera / Ophrys lutea), Mirror (Ophrys speculum subsp speculum), Dark Spider (Ophrys incubacea), Fan-lipped (Anacamptis collina) and Sawfly but none of the Hybrids.
