Returning… (Part 3)

For today I will be finishing the series of posts I’ve done on this small roadside site, that I visited back in September.

For other parts see: Previous visit, Part 1, Part 2

I was hoping to see some Thelymitra, sun orchids in flower, but they were not ready even though the day was warm.

There were some Pterostylis nutans, nodding green-hoods flowering.  They really do nod in the wind!

There were some other green-hoods up, one being Pterostylis pedunculata, the maroon green-hood and another being Linguella nana.

What was most satisfactory was seeing some of the Linguella nana had formed capsules.  That means there will be more plants there in coming years.

    Gosh, who would have thought there would be such a wealth of orchids in that unassuming little roadside verge? As a photog, I also appreciate your top shot for its composition and control of light.

      Yes, it is amazing the variety of orchids that can be found on some sites, and throughout the year, different flowers can be found. It is why I often enjoy visiting a site several times during the year.
