Having monitored them for a couple of weeks, the creek dwelling ant orchids have started putting on a display.

There are about three populations in that gully that were found a few years back. I was out there myself this afternoon and found quite a few in flower.

Yes. I took that photo a few weeks ago, and they were looking healthy. There were quite a few in flower then too. I have also noticed an extremely large colony on the southern side of the mountain. They appeared to be a few weeks behind this northern colony.
