    man this is very cool. Where abouts do you find this kind of plant?

  • Thanks Rene : ) This is an Australian Native Orchid. The Spider Orchid is quite prolific in Australian, you probably have them up your way too, near the end of spring. This one was photographed in the Adelaide Hills.
    Cheers, Leanne.
