I notice you haven't mapped this one Sandy. It looks a bit rare, but it really is so beautiful! I cannot imagine having such exotic flowers growing in the wild. My gallery would be full of images! ;)

Cheers, Amelia

They are lovely Amelia and I haven't mapped it as I am not sure the place I took the photo ... it is up in the Dunsborough area I think ... and if you look close you will see it is wrapped in some spider web ... usually the little legs are hanging down ... the detail on these little orchids really is so lovely and the colours beautiful ;)

Iam glad you like it ... see ya from Sandy ;)
