These graceful flower spikes at first glance look very similar.

One, the orchid, comes just a couple of weeks before the other in spring; both grow in long grass.

If they were more similar, I would wonder if it was a case of convergent evolution.

But as it is, they’re alike enough to be successive fairy princesses of the meadows.
