Author's notes

Four in flower. Part of Tony Wood's orchid walk. I know I probably shouldn't be posting this as it was part of a walk, but it's such a pretty species that I can't resist.

Interestingly, the very next afternoon there were 3 or 4 more in flower. They had opened completely from bud to flower in under 24 hours. I was surprised how fast the transition was.
