    Beautiful orchid species. I checked my reference books and http://www.orchidspecies.com/indexqrsel.htm it fits for location and genus but seems to be too tall for described species. There are many varieties spread throughout Europe so it could just be a local variety of D. maculata (and information in references does vary). Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for sharing this photo! It reminds me about forest not far from Moscow when I lived there. We even plant a few in our garden and they bloomed the whole summer.

    Sorry, but the plant in the photo is clearly a Dactylorhiza. The shape of the flowers is different, and notice the spots too.
