We found this strange and shy orchid in the scrub. I hope I got the right name for it...

Hi Ori,

Very nice, elegant orchid: lovely shape and colours. I love the light in this picture. I also like the perspective you chose: I think the orchid appears to its best advantage. The sharpness is also very good! Kind regards,

Hello Ori,
An Orchid? So strange and so beautiful. It looks more like Arisarum sp. Very well captured, with astonishing details. TFS. Cheers,

Hola Ori

Bella imagen y bella composición, una planta original, solo falta verla de frente. buen POV.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hello Ori,
Fantastic way to handle the lines and create a vivid image and rich in depth. Good job. You have also selected a superb POV.
Regards TFS,

Wouuuw :D absolutely amazing species. TFS

Best regards

Your picture is stunning Ori !!!
I'm speachless....

Great capture Ori,
This is definitely a Pterostylis but different to the ones I've found here so far. I photographed some a few days ago :)
I wondered when I saw this post if you were still in Israel, then I saw Australia. That makes sense.

Hi Ori,
A nice capture of this beautiful orchid. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Ori,
very beautiful species!!!!

Bonjour Ori,
Trčs belle macro valorisant bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Ori

Wonderful composition and POV of this lovely orchid showing fine detaails.

My 'bible' (Orchids of South-West Australia by Hoffman and Brown) has a very similar species (Pterostylis sp. 'plumed') characterised by a very short 'beak' and densely-hairy labellum. However, the authors shows the distribution as being around and east of Esperance, a long way from the Stirling Ranges.
A very nice portrait of this sweet looking orchid.
