[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.
