Orchis papilionacea (=Anacamptis papilionacea) (Pink Butterfly Orchid or Butterfly Orchid) [in Turk. Kelebek Orkidesi]

Dear friends, tomorrow is International Women’s Day. Hence I am presenting this adorable orchid regarded as an aphrodisiac since antiquity –which I ‘ve captured it from the high elavation of the mountanous area around Yiğitler village (Kemalpaşa, İzmir province)-, dedicating to all lady friends on both TL and world, including my mum Ülfet.

TFL and Have a nice new week!
Cheers,

A different angle in this one, Bayram, also this shot is excellent and I love the colours very much.
I think the light is better, we can see the "vains" of the leaves very well, thanks my friend, very romantic.

Dear Bayram,
what an amazing and interesting flower! Beautiful colour, great control of light. The petals look lively and transparent as they take light from other side.
Warm regards to you and all women of substance!

HI Bayram,
A very sharp capture of this Butterfly orchid.
Very good subtle lighting with the highlighted edges .
Great details and a nice blurred green BG to contrast the violet flower.
Nicely composed and neatly presented.
A very informative note and a good guide to learn.
My best regards,

Merhaba sevgili arkadaşım,
I'm so sorry to discover this beauty so late and the nice dedication for all women, including for you dear mum.
I hope the dedication is still valid now on one of the 364 men days...;) I think I'm provoking an Engerek... ouch...
I must say that I love this photo and also those you posted on TL. This one has a special beautiful green background and the sunlight on the flowers is really fantastic.
Elinize sağlik! İyi geceler,

nicely composed flower in great clarity. The lines and features are well defined. I like the softness of the blurry background. The purplish petals is so pretty.
Well composed shot.
