Orchid artwork

For something a bit different, I have a picture of a nodding greenhood and have superimposed some donkey orchids, so they look like they are in the flower.

Returning… (Part 1)

Each time I visit a site I find it offers something different.  There is a small site that I have visited twice now, and I posted some pictures of it here, on my first visit.  However, today I was there again, and the whole place yielded a totally different selection of orchids.  Last time I was there, it was June, and the middle of winter, but now some of the spring orchids were flowering.

Diuris pardina – Leopard Orchid

This is one of the first donkey orchids to open and it is reasonably common.  At the site, there were so many of these orchids, thriving and with four to five flowers open on a flower spike.  Also there were just masses of them, for a small roadside site.

I will be posting some more pictures from this site, as well as some videos.
