Orchids at Kingston Reserve, Cambridgeshire

The orchids are at their best at the moment with dozens of Pyramidal and Common Spotted Orchids, some of them white. There are also a few Bee Orchids hiding in the longer vegetation together with Twayblades. Insects are a bit more numerous now; the Great Pied Hoverfly (Volucella pellucens) was the most common hoverfly and the smallest identified insect was a Picture-winged Fly, Chaetorellia jaceae. Orchids taken with either 100-400mm lens or the Zeiss 50mm at different apertures to try to get enough depth of field for the flower without too distracting background.
