Author's notes

Very few finger orchids around in this area at the moment. These three plants were on the edge of the fire trail. Lucky to capture the pollen beetle at work.

Hi David
Nice action photo. This looks like Dicranolaius bellulus,

Would you be able to put in a separate sighting for the beetle?
