Chapman's Spider Orchid Caladenia chapmanii

Another spider orchid from my trip to Perth last month, this is the red version of Chapman's spider orchid, it can also have creamy coloured petals/lateral sepals.  Quite a large flower maybe 15cm long all up.  Found near Yallingup.

So many interesting varieties you are finding- lovely color in this one and rather different with one petal standing up. A nice series of orchid portraits.

Beautiful image with delicate lines, all are in sharp focus. The lines make a great composition.
