Over the last week, I have been in Canberra, our nation’s capital. It is a bit colder than Adelaide. Also it is very easy to reach a higher altitude than the tallest mountain in Adelaide, Mount Lofty. Mostly, I visited all the touristy things, but I had to see some orchids before I left Canberra, tomorrow.
I took a walk earlier but did not see a single orchid. Later I found out the soil was not right. So today I set out again, in the afternoon, and the light was beginning to fade. I did find some Pterostylis sp. leaves. I’m not game enough to identify them beyond that.
With light making it harder to photograph, I found these, and well they kept me occupied for a while.
One of them didn’t mind me being less than a metre away. The other barely moved.
Heading back to the car, I photographed this daisy. Sorry, I didn’t see any more orchids.
The above picture Dad held his phone with its flash on while I took the photograph. It was getting dark. Maybe I’ll return to Canberra and see some more orchids then.
