Painting a Welsh meadow with Greater butterfly orchid-Platanthera chlorantha. Cat’s ear-Hypochaeris radicata is very common unlike the rarer orchid which has a stronger scent at night and so is pollinated by night flying insects, like hawk-moths.

Wow!! Great to find this. I've been very busy lately with the waxcap surveys - a bit addicted! Don't want the season to end!
