Orchids revisited

This is truly beautiful, and I had to put it up. It's a flying duck orchid (Caleana major) which you could probably have guessed from the shape of the flower. This picture was taken by Garry Richardson in the Humbug Point area, on the way from St Helens up to The Gardens.

There's no secret that The Gardens area was named by Lady Franklin because of the flowers in the area. It's when you see a shot like this that it really brings home just how lovely they are.

A stay in The Gardens in springtime is a great way to see them and wander around through them.
