Since Richard M in Australia posted a pic of a weird dwarf orchid a few days ago, I’ve been searching for the NZ equivalent. A lot of our flora and flora originated in Australia. Separated by the 1200 NM of Tasman Sea, I know stuff just gets here by wind power alone. Look what I found! I couldn’t believe it! If it wasn’t for Richard’s pic, I would never have seen it.

It was just about dark, and nearly all light was gone. I’ll go back tomorrow and have another look. After all, there only 250 meters from my camp.. :)
8 shot in camera stack.

Nice finds @Bushboy

We're heading to New Zealand next month to watch the All Blacks play at Eden Park. We're staying for a few days afterwards and I was hoping to checkout a few of the reserves. However, reaching out to a couple of the native orchids and macro NZ FB groups, I might not have alot of luck.

I also photographed these Pelican Orchids with a couple of other coins to give some perspective to the orchids size.

#1 This one is for you @Bushboy

Unfortunately, its twofold. One is, apparently August is not a good time for native orchids in New Zealand, whereas here in Australia there are usually plenty of varieties in flower, and two, quite a number of reserves, and in particular tracks where the orchids are, are closed due to Kauri dieback.

Impressive, 4 in an afternoon. Quite likely more common in Australia than here. Such cute weirdness. Nicely done.

They say, that orchids are amongst the most highly evolved of plants...
Not that you’d think so looking at these..
A single frail stalk, one leaf, but oh! What a flower!

Would this sunflower count? Growing in a small patch of dirt in a Chicago sidewalk, can assure you they are not intentionally cultivated. My guess is that someone dumped some sunflower seeds there accidentally when littering and a number of them then grew in this small dirt patch.
