Greenhood orchids

Continuing the orchid theme, next up are some greenhood orchids. Again from the Arthur River area, there were quite a lot on display during late October, and we were extra fortunate to find a few of the very rare Arthur River greenhood (Pterostylis rubenachii) and the rather striking long yellow bearded Pterostylis tasmanica… Read more →

Overland Track Aurora – November 2015

These Overland Track aurora photos were taken back in November 2015, on the first night of my walk down the track with the Cradle Mountain Huts guided walk.
