There were a few C Spider Orchids in the area but a lot smaller than other places. This one seemed a bit odd - not fully open?

Getting a bit late for flowering, so probably a bit past its best.

I saw an old yam daisy flower today that reminded me of this. I think this is what it might be.

it looks like a Canberra Spider orchid to me; not in its prime conditions though.
