Mystery Flower

Hi Everyone,

Need to pick your brains here.  I took a photo yesterday of what I was told was a snakes tongue orchid.  But when I googled it, the flower it came up with was nothing like this one. It was growing in a grass verge at the side of the road, and a friend of ours has them in his garden.

If you have any ideas please leave a comment below.  I'd love to know what they are.

OK, I'm going to answer my own question.  I did another Google search and think I've found it.  It's a lizard orchid Himantoglossum hircinum.  Apparently quite rare in the UK, but more common here.
