    Rick! RICK! RICK!

    Please get back there asap for another shoot and take a pair of secateurs with you so you can do some gardening around these gorgeous Aussie orchids to get rid of all those sticks and native grass that are in the way. Just be careful you don’t cut the flowers, leaves or stems! 8-)


  • thanks Dennis but the C.A.L.M guys might not like the idear of me running around with secateurs, they take a big dislike to the sight of them, especially in wildflower season, the wind was very gusty wich didnt help either , blowing some of the grasses into frame. but the biggest problem was getting the camera into these beautys . as they were growing inside a large prickly bush :(
