Clear selection

The bird’s-nest orchid’s (Neottia nidus-avis) unusual colouration betrays its unusual lifecycle.  As a parasitic plant, taking its food from tree roots, it does not produce the chlrophyll that makes most plants green.  Growing within beech (Fagus sylvatica) woodland at Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia.
