Description

Did not know this species before and asked one expert by chance without having evidence at hand.
This expert told me a name i remembered as Gymnadenia "densa" and this one, G. densiflora really matches.
The habitat is a secondary, anthropogenic one, still very interesting.
It is a kind of swamp on a muddy deponed mixture of lime and iron-carbonate, so there is a special mixture of plants able get along with.
I searched for some Sisyrinchium, blue-eyed grass, i had seen there some years ago, but did not find it again.

Description

I may not be sure that this is Epipactis atrorubens in strict sense, i guess this is a most variable relationship.
Orchids, mysterious and complex at least for non-experts like me.
Some plants grew there on lime-gravel at railroad out of order.

Description

I am not sure, that this orchid is the usual Gymnadenia conopsea.
It got a more densely crowded inflorescence than other ones around, and looks different to G. odoratissima as well, possibly some hybrid?

Guess it's simply an albinotic form of this very common orchid, yet am no specialist concerning this family.
