Blue Sun Orchid

I took this photo during a three day hike along the Bibbulmen Walk Track here in Western Australia.

This native orchid grows in woodlands and amongst granite outcrops from September through to November. The beautiful blue flowers open when the warmth of the suns reaches them.

It belongs to the ORCHIDACEAE Thelymitra - Sun Orchid family.
