  • Wild Orchid

    At least I think it's an orchid.

    I found this in Lamington National Park some years ago after a 12km walk. It was next to a lookout on the edge of the cliff that forms the boundary of Qld and NSW..

    Can't comment on the orchid part -- but it's a damn fine image that you can be proud of

    Wonderful colour Alan and well presented. It a Dendrobium kingianum (Pink Rock Orchid) I reckon.

    I dusted once and it came back. I'm not falling for that again!

      Thanks Isac. Sounds good - it was growing on the rocky outcrop that formed the lookout. I thought you might like some more flowers.

      Always good to see the flowers this time of year. I took a few today so I'll see if they are good enough for posting.
