Default Wax-lip orchids

The Native Dog camping area at Cathedral Rock National Park is a veritable 'botanical gardens' of tiny wildflowers and native orchids. These are wax-lip orchids, up to about 4 cms across.

# 1 the dramatic effect of using the (inbuilt) flash


# 2


# 3


# 4


# 5


# 6


# 7


# 8


# 9 Right in close with the MCON-40


The different species of orchids have differing flowering times so it means multiple trips back over a few weekends to get examples of them. Still it's been worth it.

Cheers

Bernice & Mark
A mix of our pics.

Thank you Dick & Dyane. The orchids are almost flourescent when seen in the morning mist as these were.

cheers

Banksy, thank you. # 3 is one of Mark's. It was a quite foggy morning and everything was drenched in droplets. Came out well, didn't it.

Cheers

Bernice
