A couple of Spider Orchids, which are out at the moment. Native to the area, some of these are quite rare, due to habitat changes and land clearing, unfortunately.

5D3 with 100mm L IS macro + MT-24EX Macro Flash.

Thanks Lionrock. They are found in southern parts of Australia. I live about an hours drive NE of Melbourne, and my property backs onto a reserve of around 30 acres, which has these orchids. There's roughly 50+ types of orchids, green hoods, sun orchids, wax lips, etc in the reserve, but usually in small groups. The two above were in a group of 10-12 in the space of a small room, if that helps. At the moment, I'm trying to track down a Bearded Orchid, which appears as a single plant, in the space of an acre or so (well, there's usually about 5-6 in that area). Not easy to find, but fun when you do :)

Wax Lip orchid.
Note: the colours look a little bright after uploading the files (saved to a Google site).

Mr Bean,
Australia is unique that most of its flora and fauna are indigenous.  It is also rare that its plants are sold overseas.  Please post more of your orchids here.
Habitat for these precious plants are getting smaller, hope you can keep your part of the habitat pristine.
I return a pic with one of ours, though purchased.

It's a scan with a Canon 8800F scanner. Scanned twice and overlayed, once in flatbed mode then in transperancy mode.

Thanks for the pic Lionrock. I'd never really been into orchids until I moved out here 8-9 years ago. Then I started noticing these little things and armed with a camera, well, it became a challenge to not only photograph them but to know them. The 2 really rare ones out this way are the Rosella Spider Orchid (only a handful of plants left) and the St Andrews Spider Orchid (around 100-200 plants left). Up until 5 years ago, people kept building houses on land where these things are and wiping them out. Sometimes I have to wonder what goes though the mind of people  :-\

That's really well done Cinto. I like the use of a flatbed scanner. Very creative :)
