Artist's Description

Giant Sun Orchid – Thelymita grandiflora.

I’ve been waiting 3 years to see this orchid fully out in bloom!

The aptly named ‘Sun Orchid’ will only fully come out on warm days when the weather is just right, which is usually when I’m at work! So it’s taken me 3 years to finally see it in full bloom & it is magnificent! The bees & butterflies love it too, but they were camera shy :(

I’ve been calling this orchid a Giant Sun Orchid – Thelymitra grandiflora, but it definately has a scent, so I’m guessing its the Scented Sun Orchid & not the Giant.

Photographed at Mount Barker Summit in the Adelaide Hills.

Thanks to Russell Mawson for confirming the ID :)
