Brunonia australis - a native, definately not a weed!

Here's one from the Little Desert last weekend :

Very nice. Possibly a type of Caladenia gracilis.

Inspired by an earlier photo of a Duck Orchid I headed out to a spot on the Georges River where I have seen them before. No luck with finding any Duck Orchids but I did find some Blotched Hyacinth Orchids (Dipodium punctatum). Don't remember ever seeing a Blotched Hyacinth in the Macarthur area, so they were a joy to behold.

Nice one Michael. I don't recall seeing those locally either, but pretty sure I've spotted them in RNP.
