Sam found these tiger orchids at the corner of Gum road and Dropmore road- a lovely little swathe amongst the ever encroaching blow-fly grass!
Their brown marking are much darker than the ones I found last week . There seems to be a fair bit of variation in the colours of orchids. Tiger Orchids are sometimes called Hornet Orchids and you can see why when you look at these.
