    This picture has several orchids! Is the white one the same as the purple ones?

    Hi, yes. they are all Orchis mascula (early purple orchid) - the white one is an albino variant and is much less common; ever rarer are white ones with pink spotting on the lip (the large petal that hangs down). .
