Artist's Description

The Bonnet Orchid or Tartan Tongue Orchid (Cryptostylis erecta), is an orchid native to south eastern Australia.

Each flower has a prominent hood- or bonnet-shaped labellum with maroon stripes and markings on lilac. Arising around the labellum are the green long sepals.

Like other Australian members of its genus, it is pollinated by the ichneumon wasp known as the orchid dupe wasp (Lissopimpla excelsa), the males of which mistake the flower parts for female wasps and copulate with it.

Captured at Oatley Park south of Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Canon G12, as is.
