Buzzard and Bee Orchids

Bee Orchid, Ophrys apifera
Yesterday morning I visited a local site for an hour. I took photos of a Buzzard overhead and when I processed them was surprised to see that it had a prey item in its talons, possibly a rat. I found 14 flowering Bee Orchids within a small area  and two Brimstones.
