The photo dosn’t do it justice. Of course I was lucky to find a donkey orchid. Most of them were already gone. I didn’t find a spider orchid either 🙁 And a few others that I stumbled across. (better than looking for a white ball that didn’t want to co-operate!!) I didn’t have time to focus this picture…I was lagging behind the others! (I was supposed to be playing flog) And lucky I wasn’t fined! Now the the school holidays are here, hopefully
