Yesterday I spent an enjoyable morning searching for orchids with friends. We found many Greenhoods of varying types, and many more leaves or buds indicating that a number of species were about to burst into flower – Spider Orchid, Sun Orchid and Waxlip Orchid among them.  Try as we might, we didn’t find one of these in flower.

As luck would have it, my camera battery died halfway around, so I took another walk later in the day.  It was worthwhile because I found the first open Waxlip Orchid flower for the season.

More photos coming on the weekend – it has been a busy month!

Waxlip Orchid
Our first Waxlip Orchid for the season. A welcome sight indeed.
