    Hi everyone,

    As well as many native tuberous Drosera here in Australia, we also have hundreds of native tuberous orchid species. These are a few photos I have taken recently on field trips while looking for CP's. I thought some of you may be interested.

    Firstly, a shot of Glossodia minor- the "Small Waxlip Orchid"-

    Next, Caladenia carnea- "Pink Fairies"-

    And finally 2 shots of Caladenia clavigera- the "Spider Orchid"

    The first, a shot of the entire plant-

    And secondly a closeup of the flower-

    Just a taste of some of our beautiful ground orchids. If anyone wants to see more I have plenty stored away. Just let me know.

    Regards,

    Sean.

    Very nice [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]. Got any pictures of Greenhoods in the wild?

    Those are beautiful Sean! Thanks for sharing the pics since they are types of orchids you don't normally get to see. I am so envious of your surroundings. You get to see not only CPs in the wild but orchids too. And what a photo op!

    Forget what the name is but thought it was a cool pic with the dodder climbing on it.

    I can't see the photo but from what I remember I'm pretty sure the plant with the dodder is Pterostylis cycnocephala. Another of the weird looking Greenhood Orchids.

    Sean.
