Sun Orchids – Common pink sun orchid – Thelymitra rubra.
The most amazing group of flowering sun orchids I have ever seen!
Photographed on Mount Barker Summit in the Adelaide Hills.
The aptly named sun orchid only comes out on a warm day, and usually only a few at a time, so I was amazed to see so many out all at once :)
These beautiful orchids, amongst others, are under direct threat from the development plans of the Mt Barker Council
