Baby Greenhood Pterostylis parviflora

The summer is over and I thought I might have another look for orchids in autumn. Spotted some of these amongst the gras, they're not that easy to see themselves as they are only 10-15cm high and their green color gives them good camouflage. Their size also makes it difficult for me to photograph.

I found a few in two separate areas in early May in Baluk Willam Flora Reserve. They are also called Tiny Greenhood, Jug Orchid or Green Snail Orchid.
