Another sign of spring has come here - the Pink Butterfly Orchid (Anacamptis papillionacea) has opened its flowers! :aww:

This plant is a European terrestrial species and grows throughout the Mediterranean area, in several varieties. Since it is noticeably pretty, it has a number of common names, such as Orchis papillon (French), Orquídea mariposa (Spanish), Orchidea farfalla (Italian), Marculella (Corsican), Schmetterlingsknabenkraut (German), Vlinderorchis (Dutch), ... ;)

The photo has undergone a couple of postprocessing steps, of course. Full view, please! :)
