Common Spotted Orchids

Fathers Day was marked this year with a trip to Canvey West End for some orchid hunting.
It's a fantastic place to see Common Spotted Orchids and we were treated to a display that really showed off how varied in size, colour and markings this orchid can be.
I could have shown more, but I've edited it down to my 3 favourite flowers of the day...
From left to right; mass of orchids, perfect specimen, stunning pink and white version, and a perfectly white albino version.
