We were like Bees, photographing  one Leek after another.  There was enough to fill my card a few times over.  Then we noticed there were differences in shape, colour and smell.

In the end they all were the same but different.

The Prasophyllum odoratum complex has been reviewed and this is one of the 15 new members which are yet to be officially named and for me identified.

Photographed at Anglesea.
