Cooked breakfast outside on a stunning Hunter Valley day. Plan was to head back to Sydney early afternoon. Enough time to head for a walk down Lovers Jump Creek.
First sight of a spurred helmet orchid bud probably a week away from fully open.
Early bud form for a nodding greenhood.
Spider web action on small mosquito orchid - acianthus pusillus
Love the story book of this red mushroom
Struggling to ID this acianthus - I think acianthus exsertus - large mosquito orchid
The ladies love this little flower
Found a new sharp greenhood - green form
The more normal colouring of pterostylis acuminata
Crossed to the south side of the creek - chiloglottis sylvestris still flowering
Found a different acianthus up the hill - calli on the labellum is the clue - acianthus fornicatus
Close up. Nice walk on a balmy afternoon. Nice to take photos without leech attention.
Dinner: chicken drumsticks in airfryer plus fried rice plus brussel sprouts. Simple food.
