When we were in Queens Park in Invercargill on 28 November, Nigel spotted this orchid perched in a tree on the main path. He took some photos as we both thought it looked attractive perched in the mature tree. I assume its one of our native orchids – we’ve seen plants just like this perched on trees when we’ve been bush walking. Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand
There’s way more native orchids than I ever thought. If you’re interested, there’s a great website I found recently. Here’s a link to the INDEX PAGE to their photos.
