Beard Orchid Calochilus paludosus

Another species of beard orchid, Calochilus paludosus is quite common is a little hard to spot, it's flowering now in forests around home.  Pollination is by wasps trying to mate with the labellum.  This image is a 20 frame stack.

Such character- a charming flower, or if you wish, a personage of sorts. Excellent stacking.
