This delicate white flower is a native Australian orchid called Lady’s Fingers (Caladenia catenata).

These small flowers are only around 3cm wide.

This little beauty was photographed during Spring at Georges River National Park, Sydney.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
