|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Easily overlooked, the Mignonette Orchids (Microtis sp) are small terrestrial orchids, with 13 out of the 21 species of the genus found in almost all soil types of the South-West of Western Australia. They have very small, dull and insignificant flowers, white to greenish, on a single spike, with a single onion-like leaf. They are pollinated by ants and small flies. Nothing spectacular so I thought I would do a macro of the small flowers instead. I found this specimen in a car park in the shade, hence the high ISO and hand held lens.|
