Caladenia testacea

Shot this orchid a couple of days ago near home, it's Caladenia testacea and moderately uncommon. It usually flowers around October so is quite early this year.  This one is a 30 frame stack.  Quite a small orchid, about 15mm across the widest part.

The angle on the subject and the stacked detail show the beautiful flower exceptionally well.

Very pretty she way the stem curves and twists, and the flower is gorgeous!
