Second stop on our way from Iraklion to Kerames. Just outside a village were some fallow fields which I explored, and where I found the first Ophrys species.

Asphodelus ramosus

Phlomis spec.


Cistus creticus

Ophrys bombyliflora

Eucera spec. Ceratina cucurbina
The bee's head is covered in orchid pollinia,
possibly from an Ophrys species.
