Yesterday, I joined a group of botanists and botanical artists to go and find wild orchids. Our destinations were the cemeteries at Penrose and Tallong, two villages in the Southern Highlands. Though not all of them orchids, here is what we found.

|Thelymitra ixiodes aka Spotted Sun Orchid|
|Diuris punctata aka Purple Diuris, found at Penrose|
