A rare orchid has been spotted by a keen naturalist deep in county woodland.
Glen Dipple, 68, from Worcester, came across the plant while on one of his outdoor walks through the countryside near Himbleton.
Mr Dipple said: “I’ve been interested in wild orchids for many years.
“This one is rare, I believe, one of only three violet helleborine var rosea reported this year in the whole of Great Britain.
“People often trample on orchids not knowing what they are and it really peeves me.”
