A day out with a cheetah at the Canberra Zoo

Bella season!!

Similiar but very different!
Both pale and stripy, with delicate pink ribs and tips to each petal
when the florets first open, deepening over the next few days.
Here is the clump with both flowering heads, (the second in the distance)
and then a close up of each cluster of flowers separately.
They really need to be full screen to see the detail,
and the scent is wafting all around the garden.

Wildlife in and around Canberra

On safari!

After the rain: Black Mountain orchids

A selection of ground orchids, and a sundew...
(I plan to do better next year once I've mastered the lenses!)

Spring morning on Black Mountain

Blink, and they are gone...
Grey ghosts, or was it a log???
