Flora and creek

Todays’ photographs include another attempt to get a decent representation of a donkey orchid (Diuris), and a trip down to the creek.

Pea flower
A pea flower (Fabaceae) with gorgeous deep colours.

I’m reasonably happy with this photograph of this donkey orchid (Diuris). The colour is good, the angle is great, the detail is fine, and the depth of focus is about right. Now I can concentrate on some other flora for a while 🙂
I did photograph yet another species of Diuris today but felt that is was a little too worse for wear to publish. C’est la vie!

An unidentified member of the Goodenia family. It has a gold colour as opposed to the more usual yellow flowers found in this area.

Our creek - downstream
Looking downstream. Our creek’s eastern end, passing through a mini-gorge. The upstream end is more meadow-like (on a small scale).

Fern in rocks
A fern, perhaps maidenhair, growing in cracks in the rocks at the creek’s edge. The plants here see no or little sun due to their being shaded by the rocky overhang.

Mini waterfalls
Our multi-drop mini-falls at one point on the creek. It not exactly a huge tourist attraction but is extremely pleasant to sit by.
