Caption: Orchids. Wild orchids in flower under a tree. Orchids belong to an extremely diverse family (Or- chidaceae) of flowering plants, which contains at least 15,000 species. Many of these species have evolved highly elaborate mechanisms to attract in- sect pollinators, such as flowers that mimic sex- ually attractive females. Highly specific rela- tionships often develop between orchids and their pollinators, but in spite of this, hybridisation between different orchid species is common, and new species are thought to evolve very quickly. Photographed in Monsal Dale, Derbyshire, UK.
