Wild orchid

Well I did not join in the orchid challenge from Sigrid, just because I almost not have any photo of orchids. For those who joined in the challenge, I enjoyed them. Now at the end of the week, I like to post one of a wild orchid native to Belgium and many parts of europe. These are growing not far from my home and it is with taking photos again that I noticed them. This species have very small flowers and if you zoom in on them, you will see that they are tiny orchids. I believe the species is " Dactylorhiza maculata ", If I am wrong please feel free to correct me. I like flowers but names...;

Oh I saw this also in the wild. I wonder, that it's on the red list, like Sigrid mentioned.
It's great how bokeh highlights the flowers ! Beautiful !
