This is only a small selection of orchids around the Adelaide Hills, with there being many more varieties. Tossing gently in the morning breeze this is one of the wild gems of Australia. Believe it or not, this is an orchid that does look like a flying duck. It can be found in southern Australia and flowers in November. It is endangered.
