This video says about itself:
This video shows male Orchid Bees collecting fragrance from a Mexican Orchid, Mormodes badia.
Filmed at Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens.
One of the subjects is the broad-leaved helleborine. Compared to other orchid species in the Netherlands, rather a common species. It even grows on the museum’s parking lot.
