Lesser yellow bee Orchid

Photo of Lesser yellow bee Orchid, Ophrys sicula, in Rethimnon district Crete Greece. This is a small flowered Ophrys species, similar to 3 others that belong to the same group. It can be distinguished by the smaller length of its lip and the more sparce lip hairs. It flowers in January-May.
