Pterostylis rufa (Rusty Hood)

Passion is infectious. Going into the bush with someone who is passionate and knowledgeable is wonderful. We went to the grainte belt in QLD - I was hoping for reptiles, he was hoping for orchids. We couldn't lose.

This plant is quite small - the floawers are only about a centimeter long. Like most orchids, the structure of the flower has a fascinating alieness.
