more spotted orchids

the first (from the left) is pink spotty and spiky

the second is paler, and less spotty

the third is very pale, much blunter spike and only a few spots. None of them have the characteristic wavy lower lip of heath spotted orchid, but all have only a very small middle lobe. I like to imagine (but doubt it) that these flowers are a new variety evolving before my very eyes in this very odd but special field.
