Thelymitra ixioides aka Spotted Sun Orchid
Kingdom: Plantae
Phylum: Angiospermae
Class: Monocots
Order: Asparagales
Family: Orchidaceae
Mount George Conservation Park – October 18th, 2014 – warm conditions after previous day’s rain

These are my favourite Sun Orchids – The blues, mauves, sea greens and dash of yellow make it a harmonious pictorial delight – They did not evolve to please the human eye, but whatever lucky creature they attract, I am glad we get to share them.
