Natural History Photographs

Crete, Greece
27 April 2017

Nearing the end of my stay at Crete, and having found most of the targets, we looked for nothing in particular, and explored some small roads. We stopped in the middle of nowhere; soon enough I found an orchis we hadn't found yet, Anacamptis coriophora. We looked around some time for any additional bonuses; for Matty this was an ET-like encounter with a lizard...
