This is a terrestrial, wild bee orchid with a mauve hue. I’m surprised when I discover them growing wildly in the garden under the pine trees. The angle of the camera makes them look slightly taller than they are, but those are blades of grass around them.

You are so lucky to find wild orchids. I like orchids, but wild orchids are impossible in the downtown where I live. 
Good shoot. Thanks for sharing!

You’re welcome - my pleasure! It’s true in city centres we have very neat gardens with sometimes access to unique vegetation, but nothing natural.
