Cobra Greenhood Pterostylis grandiflora

Hoping to find something I hadn't seen before I visited Baluk Willam Flora Reserve in early June. During a circuit walk of the reserve at first I only found one and it was in the shade. I thought I'd come back when the sun had moved around but then found another area with quite a few plants.

I've also seen them called the Superb Greenhood.
