Sword-leaved Helleborines OMFL!

Taking an annual day off from work I decided to look for a new orchid for me in the nearby county of Warwickshire. The orchid in question was Sword-leaved Helleborine.
Driving over to Oversley Wood, near Alcester, it took me another 2 hours to find these exquisite orchids as I walked around the wood.
Just off the footpath I found at least ten of these lovely plants and as usual I took a few shots of them.
My British orchid list now stands around 40 species and only another 15 to go before I have seen the lot!
