Artist's Description

This tiny bird orchid, (Chiloglottis sp), was standing guard at the Kate Reed Reserve in Launceston when a final straggling sunray broke through the surrounding trees to illuminate him.

Chiloglottis orchids are pollinated by deceived male thynnine wasps who transfer pollen from one plant to another while believing they are lavishing their attentions on a female of their own species.

Only comments about the photo please – no inappropriate jibes about the gullibility of the male gender!
