Despite the recent cold wet snap here in the Avon Valley I’ve managed to keep getting out into the bush looking for native orchids.
The dancing spider orchid (Caladenia discoidea) is also known as the Bee Orchid and Antelope Orchid. Although it is very small and easily missed its distinctive shape means that it cannot be mistaken for anything else. Mount Observation, Western Australia.
