We had done some research and our ancient documents told us where these orchids could be found.  We soon realised that in 10 years things change.  We made some assumptions and soon we were parked and searching a possible location.  Bingo! We had one, then another.  They were fading fast but there were still a few in their prime.

Photographed in the Wodonga area.
