Tiny Tuesday - Tiny Orchid

I took a chance on the weather and detoured to Sheffield Park Gardens, managed by the National Trust, on the way home from Mum's.

There were some gorgeous colours around as I roamed the park - some of the acers in particular had strong red colours, reminiscent of Autumn.  Howeever, I was on the lookout for a small subject for today's Tiny Tuesday challenge, and eventually spotted this little orchid in the long grass.  It's a Common Spotted Orchid, and as its name suggests, it is common and one of the easiest to spot in the UK countryside.  This one was "photo bombed" by a bee as I sat there composing my photo!

Posting very late Backblipping so this will almost certainly miss any voting, but thanks anyway to ninniex for hosting Tiny Tuesday.
