Steaming up for a hot day. The morning went by the normal way - update overnight investing - pottered around the garden a bit. Just could not get moving - too hot to ride. Walked the dog
Took the car to visit far side of Ku-ring Gai Chase NP - fringed midge orchid seen last week is now open
Photo work was hard in the wind and the bright sun
Spider has caught a butterfly - wraps it up and eat later
View from the other side
Bonnet orchid in a new spot
Banksia bud emerging
Rupp's midge orchid also in a new spot - in a grassy area
Darker version one plant away
As close up as phone would allow
This is what they look like when they start to go to seed
A cicada husk before it starts to fade
Large tongue orchid - cryptostylis subulata - the last days
The mission for the day achieved - brittle midge orchid - genoplesium baueri
Close up - an endangered orchid - one of 13 sites. Only one plant flowering this year.
Stepped back photo
A different view of a Rupp's midge orchid - yellow tips
Going to dig into the books to pin down ID. The yellow tips have me confused
This is the other style growing right next door
Everything else looks the same
In all a good walk - 5 orchids open
Friend come over to stay for weekend - turned into a long night
Dinner: Mongolian beef - new recipe did not work out the way the photos said. Tasted fine
Trade action: Bought more DBK.DE averaging down
And a photo came in from my son - my granddaughter at 3 months
