Eriochilus cucullatus


This little beauty is one of the first orchids I have seen this Autumn. Otherwise known as Parsons Bands. It stands at under 10cm tall and the flower its self is the size of your thumb nail. The object in question in my last post is a Chinton, a sea shell found on the inter tidal zone of rocky shore line. Thanks for your guesses!

That is a very beautiful and delicate orchid. I don't think I've seen one quite like it before.

Well looks like I was way off on the guesses. That was a tough one.
