This Fragrant Orchid was photographed near Dun Eochla stone fort at the highest point of Inishmore, the largest of the Aran Islands, in Galway Bay, Ireland.

Botanical name: “Gymnadenia Conopsea”
Wild orchids depend on a special relationship between their roots and certain fungus. (The particular fungus varies with the type of orchid.)

It is thought that the mycelium (thread-like growths through the soil) of the fungus provide nutrients to the tiny orchid seeds. Without the fungus in the soil, the orchid seed will not germinate. Some orchids require the presence of the mycelium throughout their lives some need it only at the time of seed germination.
