Serapias lingua

Gouache on 35.5 x 51 cm 100% cotton rag

This is one of my favourite Mediterranean orchids growing in loose colonies, flowering at the beginning of May. There seems to be a lot of variation in the colour of the lip which I tried to capture here. Over on the photo gallery are more images along with the other local species – Serapias vomeracea.
