Early Purple Orchid - Orchis mascula
Pieniny National Park, Poland

The Pieniny meadows constitute a very important element of the landscape, despite the fact that they are not truly natural communities - the area they occupy was once forest.
In a single square metre one can find about 30-40 species of flowering plants, and in certain 100 square metre patches it is possible to spot as many as 70.
