Authentic Orchids …

It’s not only time for the orchid society to flaunt the seasonally gaudy it’s also time for Victoria’s native orchids to show off their more subtle and delicate flowers. Here’s a couple that I’ve found in the past week.

This first one was in open woodland in the Grampians …

Caladenia tentaculata

This one was in the Wail State Forest …

Pterostylis maxima

Disclaimer … When it comes to matters botanical my id skills are suspect. Treat these names with caution.
