Superb Greenhood Pterostylis grandiflora

Superb greenhood found on a walk on the Illawarra escarpment yesterday, it’s 5 minutes drive from home and these are about an hour’s walk in. Also known as Cobra Greenhood, I prefer the name Superb.
This is a 29 frame stack shot at f3.5 and includes one frame at f2.8 used for the background. They were not easy to line up to shoot, growing in among bracken etc and mostly facing away from the track.

Super stacked detail, what an extraordinary flower. Beautiful background as well.
