Lizard Orchids in Kent
It was tricky to photograph Lizard Orchids, Himantoglossum hircinum today due to a brisk wind blowing across these calcareous sand dunes near Sandwich, Kent.
In David Lang's "Britain's Orchids" he observes that six of the sixteen populations of this curious orchid in southern England are on golf courses, which begs the question whether golfers are aiding their spread inadvertently.
