Gymnadenia conopsea subsp. densiflora f. albiflora

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 27 June 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Series: European Terrestial Orchids

This is the same species as I showed yesterday, only the albiflora form. I explained the "albiflora" form on previous species. It is always a delight finding these pure white flowers among a population of normal colored specimens.

@Patricia (✿◠‿◠)❤: Dank je, Patricia. De witte vorm spreekt me persoonlijk ook meer aan dan de roze...

The white flowers are very pretty. They probably stand out amongst the pink ones.

@Julie Brown: They indeed do, Julie. There were thousands of pink one on the slope and only 7 white ... But the white ones are so much more attractive....

Nice column of flower, you really centered this one to divide the frame perfect.

@Dutçh: Centering subjects is not my favorite composition, but sometimes ...

In white they appear more noble and stylish.
Your depth of field is quite exquisite, as usual ;D

@daniela scharnowski: I prefer the white ones also.
