Bee Orchids

Went out around Eneabba on the weekend and saw heaps of different spider orchids. Had to cut the trip short because of a flat tire. Not a bad place to have a flat tire because while waiting I saw some Northern Bee Orchids, Northhampton Bee Orchids and an Arrowsmith Pansy Orchid. Had never seen these species before myself, and probably would not have if not for that flat!
