I identified the Spanish orchid!

I shared a photo of this gorgeous wildflower I spotted on a hike in Basque country, and having a hunch it was an orchid, I googled and voila, found it right away at Iberian Wildlife Tours page on Spanish orchids. It is definitely an Ophrys, and I am pretty sure it is the woodcock Ophrys.
I also found the other plant I had identified as an orchid, which has the amusing name of Naked Man Orchid:
The best part about all of this is that these plants were spotted along a popular trail and not disturbed.
