And another selection from Francis - FROG ORCHIDS

Musk Orchid in full flower

And a nice Frog Orchid in equal splendour

Sadly, after Francis and I visited, this fine specimen was eaten by a Muntjac Deer ! - where was the caging on this one?

And what a year for Musk Orchids - 68 spikes of which I counted at this site

And Marbled Whites are out in absolute profusion at the moment

Don't know where these orchids are but if in Beds please make sure they are recorded on the current Beds orchid survey:
