Orchids – Serpentine NP

Another 2014 photo, from a photowalk in the Serpentine National Park back in September 2014. It was a stinker of a day and while I took a lot of water with me, I was dehydrated well before reaching the summit. I wasn’t walking alone however and my companion wanted to keep going because the view from the top was worth it. It was a long hard slog that took most of the day, considering how lethargic I was from the heat and lack of hydration. And the ants didn’t help.

I managed to get a few nice photos on the day, this being one of them. I love orchids, and there are so many varieties in the South West that any walk in wildflower season is well worth the effort.
