It's one of the local species of orchids. Many different types, much smaller than the larger tropical orchids. Lens was just a sigma 18-50mm: standard with the local IST DS and DL kits. Haven't seen any pentaxs advertised with genuine Pentax lenses in Perth.

beautiful close up
my guess is a king spider orchid - caledenia pectinata
found from north of Perth to Esperance

if you want to find orchids, you go down your local bush
and look hard

try looking around sheoaks for a start
get a book - "orchids of the sout - west australia" is a beauty

try the wildflower show at Kings park next weekend
you can get some unusual ones there

my place - http://johndolphin.net/photos/
(try a search on orchids)
