  1. I'm enjoying using the Olympus O-MD EM-1 II with 60mm macro lens for the native orchids

    Here are a few recent images

    #1 Wine-lipped Spider Orchid

    #2 Greencomb Spider Orchid

    #3 Frankston Spider-orchid
    The Frankston Spider-orchid Caladenia robinsonii is one of the most threatened orchids in Australia. It is included in the ANZECC List of Threatened Australian Flora as Endangered, is listed as a threatened taxon under the Victorian Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988, and is considered Endangered by Carr (1991), Backhouse and Jeanes (1995) and Briggs and Leigh (1995). Under current IUCN Red Book threat categories and criteria (1994), the Frankston Spider-orchid is Critically Endangered.
