The location looks a bit odd. Is it correct? And you need to change the abundance - I can see three plants in the first photo.
It looks like those two flowers might have been fertilised - the ovaries look a bit swollen.

Damn phone GPS, it was certainly not at the base of Telstra Tower... I'll get it updated...

If you use the Naturemapr app you are more likely to get the right coordinates. At least, that's what I find now with Android.

Hmm... I used used the app to upload some lilies I found while walking around Mt Anslie to test it out... and it doesn't seem to appear?
