Nature’s infinite variety

We were fortunate to enjoy a burst of autumn sunshine this morning. This was soon followed by a wintry blast to remind us that some bleak days are just around the corner. I headed out to the Spring Hill area in search of orchids and managed to find a few, including some dainty Tiny Greenhoods (pictured below), a few Parsons Bands and a single badly munched Autumn Greenhood.

Birds were few and far between but there is still the odd dragonfly and damselfly about to remind us of summer.

  1. Hi Geoff

    Wondering what lens you used for these lovely greenhood photos.

  2. Hi Bronwyn – I used the Canon 5D MKIV and Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM … hand held w/o flash.
    Cheers, Geoff

  3. Marvellous dragonfly, it looks as though its moving.
