    Default Wild orchids of Iceland (pictures)

    Sorry for the long hiatus, but I am currently on a study abroad with my university in Iceland. So far I have encountered two species here and I have taken a few pictures. These two species have been fairly easy to find, usually among rocky places, heath lands, and grassy slopes.

    Here is Coeloglossum viride and a close-up.


    Here is Platanthera hyperborea and a close-up.


    If you think I did not identify these orchids incorrectly please give your suggestion(s). Enjoy!

    Lovely.

    I would enjoy a hike for photography of ground orchids.

    As much as I love seeing pictures of orchids, I love even more to see pictures of orchids growing in their natural habitats. I especially like the pink one. Thanks for sharing!

    Hey all!
    Thanks for the nice comments and I'll try to load pictures of Iceland in the next couple of days.

    Bruce: I will be in Iceland until the 17th of August and then it is a long flight home to Seattle
