Jenny - is this location within one of your adopted orchid spots - if so the GPS on your camera may be out a little. Let me know and I can fix location.

I found this orchid while wandering around between points 11 and 14. I have checked my camera logtrack and the position seems to be about right for this orchid, but I cannot recognize the exact location from the Google Earth map. Unfortunately it is about 62m from point 14 and it was the only one of this species that I found. My phone was not working so I could not produce an independent track. As GPS points can have an error of at least 10m it is possible that the point may not be accurate and could be relocated. What do you think?

Thanks Jenny, I think leave as is I was just checking that it wasn't taken in your plot
