    I am with Al, every time I see your photos I want to break into a rendition of 'The Hills are Alive'. Thankfully none of you will be subjected to my vocalizations.

    hmmm....i wonder what other "look alikes" we can find......
    Orchis mascula: looks sort of like a purple angel with a funny pointy gnome hat when looked at front on.......
    And Himantoglossum adriaticum: looks like one of those "clown" type dendrobiums.....

    Wow. Wow. Wow. I'm agog (and how often does one get to say that?), and nearly (but not quite) speechless. Thank you so much for sharing so much beauty. Truly tremendous!
