I recently came across a few non-digital pictures I had taken on April 8, 2002 - pre-Alqueva times! - at a spot rich of 6 species of orchids, somewhere between Luz and Povoa close to Monte Castelhano Velho. At that time, we had spotted Ophrys lutea, O. incubacea (below), O. tenthredinifera (below), Serapias parviflora, Orchis laxiflora and a large number of Orchis italica (below). I thought it would all get flooded by the dam lake. Did it?
