Author's notes

If anyone was interested in what a greenhood orchid tuber looks like, look no further. This plant was probably the victim of a lyrebird scratching around for tasty orchid tubers. I did not dig it up myself (that's very illegal). I tried replanting it in the churned up soil. Hopefully it survives.
