Indian pipe (Monotropa uniflora) is non-photosynthetic. Instead it utilizes mycoheterotrophy, which involves acquiring carbon-rich photosynthates from a nearby tree via a shared fungal root-association.

Tiny ground orchid from New Zealand.
3 shot handheld HDR. ISO 1600 required for shutter speed. Merged in Affinity, crazy filter applied.

It's been a couple of weeks since we were allowed to roam, so I joined a friend for a ramble through nearby state forest, cooing over the flowers coming out. For a different approach, I took the Panasonic 7-14mm, which gets surprisingly close. It's no winner, though, for small subjects.

Very pretty flowers. I gather it's a Hovea.
Spring on the way?
Some of our wattles are colouring up in the buds

There's another pretty flowering native behind there by the looks

Yes, Richard, I think it's a hovea, but I'm not sure which - my local(ish) field guide doesn't have it at all. Saw quite a bit of it, usually peeking out from under xanthorrhoeaeas. The red flower in the background is the flame heath, astroloma species.

Here's a climbing sundew, drosera species. I love these clever carnivorous plants! Technically, these aren't flowers, they're little nectar traps and the fringe around the bowl is tipped with sticky globules. (These will have a small, 5-petalled pink or white flower.) But I decided to put it in this thread anyway. Sorry.

While I'm waiting for wildflower season to begin, here's one of some blue spike milkwort (comesperma species) from last year I hadn't edited until today.
