Rabbit Ears Thelymitra antennifera

This small sun orchid was growing in two small colonies not far from each other along the roadside by Baluk Willam Flora Reserve. Nearby, and flowering at the same time, were more solitary Salmon Sun Orchids. During the late spring, in 2003, we got quite a lot of rain and I wasn't able to make it during a sunny day mid October. In early November I saw some flowering high in the Grampians.
