Lesser Butterfly Orchid

The first I've seen this summer. They are reasonably widespread on Islay, often in quite boggy places, but have been declining nationally for many years. It was good to find several flowering spikes in an area where I hadn't seem them before. There should be more to see in the next two or three weeks as they grow and the flowers open out more.
