Flora of the Pyrenees

This is a collection of flowers and plants in the Pyrenees. Everyone is welcome to add more !
Don't feel ashamed if you don't know the names of them, a fair percentage of my own photos of this album belong to the "Unidentified flora" album as well ! :)

Nice gallery

Hi Visentin,
Nice gallery. The gentians that you've called blue gentians are trumpet or stemless gentians. There are 3 types that are really similar and I can't tell which you've photographed.
Unfortunately that's not a Lady's slippers orchid which are mega rare (there's one in the Valle de Tena and they put a guard on it while it's in flower to make sure nobody digs it up!). Looks as though it could be lotus alpinus which I know has a common name of 'gilded lady's slipper' in some languages.
I'll add a few more comments to the pics.
