Green winged Orchid
I was out early this morning with a friend visiting the field in Exmouth where the Green winged orchids are found. We had been advised that they are now in bloom. Funnily enough I visited this field exactly a year ago when I commented that the peak of the flowering was over but that there were still a few late ones around. They are very small orchids with sheath like leaves and the green veined sepals and petals form a helmet like structure around the flower. There were various different forms of this variety, see extras and also about 3 white ones.
It was a lovely start to the day with the sun out and we managed to take all the photos we wanted before the rain started. I had also managed to get a swim in as there had been a cancellation this afternoon. That was certainly a shock to the system but I felt better for it.
