This is a different species to the last orchid shot I posted. There are several varieties in this species across the southern landmass of Australia. All are tiny on thin stems that wave constantly in the slightest breeze. About the size of a 20cent piece.

Shot with the Nikon D5600 with 40 mm macro lens. F16, ISO 200, 1/80s, with diffused flash all on a gorilla tripod.

You do so very well with these tiny orchids- really a beauty, this one. Love the "beard"- so colorful and unusual.
