The new photos are now listed. They can be found from the list of photos. There are some pictures in the "Öland-article" which don´t show any orchids, and they are of course not listed in the list.

We have again changed the pages into more user-friendly mode. 
Also, look at the description of our trip to Öland. We have also added lots of photos, and I will index them when I´ll have time.
