Another orchid from SW Western Australia, found near Margaret River, the labellum on this species is quite unique.

Very nice detail in the flower- the water droplets are a nice addition. Such an unusual plant- thanks for sharing!

Those WA orchids are great, but I am finding the Otway orchids are very good too. They have a very similar looking spider too.

The detail here is great Chris

Apart from being a couple of legs short, its a good name!  :)   A beautifully detailed study of this lovely orchid, Chris.
