Western Australia is a mecca for viewing wild flowers. You can pull up anywhere along the roadside and wander around finding so many different types, forms and coloured flowers. A photographers paradise. Look at the dry, stony soil and yet flowers are everywhere.
Big, bold clumps easy to see. Then walk further into the bush and look carefully and you will see the tiny, delicate orchids and many, to me, unknown species.
Donkey orchid is very well named.
Green hooded orchid.
