Two days in Kangaloon

As happens these days, I create albums in Facebook and post links here,
You do not need to be a Facebook Member to view the Albums. No need to sign up for anything.

Yesterday's Album has the iconic Critically Endangered Thelymitra kangaloonica - the Kangalooon Sun Orchid. Also a very nice specimen of the Copper Bearded Orchid, Calochilus campestris.

Orchids and some others, from Kangaloon yesterday

Margot and Bryan visit Kangaloon

Today's Album had several nice Orchids, especially the Red Bearded Orchid and a nice (open for a change) Thelymitra carnea - the tiny Pink Sun Orchid.
Various other annoying non-Orchids found their way in front of my Lens.

Red Bearded Orchid Calochilus paludosis 

And my favourite "Pretty" the diminutive Pink Sun Orchid Thelymitra carnea

My garden is looking pretty good after the big storm last night.

Here is a link to a Facebook Album of recent photos.

You do not need to join Facebook - this album is fully public to everybody.

Here is a sample. My favourite Waratah flower growing just outside my front door. It is looking at its prime right now.
The styles (the pointy bits in each flower)
are now opening out well.
The whole head of flowers is called a "conflorescence"
About 50% of the individual flowers are now open.
