Glossodia major

Glossodia major Wax-lip Orchid, Brisbane Ranges 4 October 2017
At this time of the year the Wax-lip Orchids are ubiquitous, seemingly flowering everywhere in the bush. I found this little group in the Brisbane Ranges today but they were scattered throughout the understory. After the first few minutes of delight I tend to ignore them because I'm looking for other plants or insects. I hardly ever photograph them but this is one I took several weeks ago.

But this one stopped me in my tracks. The white form is rarely seen.
