We had passed this area on the way to our usual haunts, but today we stopped and went to look if it was a spot to keep an eye on.

Well, we found lots, most we had seen before, but this sun orchid stood out.  It was small and open but the wind was blowing a gale, hence so few photos, the photos mostly finished in the trash can!  Next year!
