Ophrys tenthredinifera Willd
It took quite a long time to identify this orchid we saw growing in scrubby grassland near the sea in February, near the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Cape, Cape Especial
(Cabo Espichel,"Nossa Senhora's sanctuary do Cabo" or "SantuĂˇrio da Pedra Mua") Portugal.
The colours didn't quite match any pictures we could find, but the rest of the description seemed right so we're fairly confident.
