Grassland Flora #3.

A short distance further east the flora becomes richer and more abundant, with for example, Podolepis jaceoides, the Showy Podolepis, a personal favourite.

Also a favourite of many insects.

The Pale Everlasting, Coronidium gunnianum.

Grevillea lanigera has disappeared from much of its former local areas, but is hanging on here.

Orchids, Diuris punctata and sulphurea flowering side by side.

Sun-orchids, first the familiar Thelymitra ixioides, the Dotted Sun-orchid.

These look to be Thelymitra arenaria, the Forest Sun-orchid, but the id is not definite.
