Spider Orchid

Spider Orchid 1

We went for a short hike at Blackboy Ridge, in the Chittering Valley about 90km north of Perth yesterday. They were celebrating the annual Chittering Wildflower Festival in the nearby town of Bindoon, and there was an amazing variety of wildflowers along the hiking trail. We liked these Spider Orchids and were surprised to see that the one on the top right of the photo below even had a tiny, white spider in its “mouth”.
