Yet more flowers already

I have given the image immediately following pride of place as it is the first sun-orchid we have found on the property. It has been identified as Thelymitra pauciflora by Jean Egan, a co-author of "A Field Guide to the Orchids of the Australian Capital Territory" which everyone should own! The image isn't great, but it was difficult to get anything as the flower whipped back and forth in the gale blowing on 31 October!

The following lot are an Orchid (Stegastylis sp); flowering sundew (Drosera sp); a Chocolate lily and a small native Bluebell (Wahlenbergia communis).
