Orchids


This page is part of Linda's collection photographs of flowers in European mountains, mostly alpine (roughly 1800-2500m) and sub-alpine (roughly 1200-1800 m), but with a few from lower altitudes. The collection includes shots of over 560 species. The main page contains additional information, and links to the other pages in the set.

This page contains all of the orchids, in the same colour sequence as the other pages:
