Purple Enamel Orchid
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|A Purple Enamel orchid (Elythranthera brunonis) is easy to identify. As its common name points out, it has glossy petals and sepals which glow in the sun. In common with many terrestrial orchids from the South-West of Western Australia, it flowers from late winter into spring. This one was found on the side of a logging gravel road, on the way back from a well deserved holiday to the Margaret River region.|
One of only two species in the genera, both endemic to the SW of WA and growing from south of Geraldton to east of Esperance.

THANKS!!! 3 for the price of 1.
A lovely presentation!!!
Loved your notes too.
Wonder if the thin slender one is a sort of a spider.
The Hover fly looks great!!!
