Native orchids face many daily threats to their existence including consumption by animals like kangaroos, trampling by wild animals and human traffic, bushfire, pollution, land development, farming and frequently roadside clearing by local councils or farmers. This particular orchid is the Jackson’s Sun Orchid and is listed as a priority one orchid due to its rare numbers and limited habitat. Like many orchids, it grows near the roadside edge to take advantage of water runoff from the roads. Despite being known as declared rare flora and as such appropriately marked, this particular population featured in this picture fell victim to routine fire burn offs last year. Controlled burns are necessary in Australia to prevent the massive damage that can occur from wild bushfires however the timing of them is integral to the survival of orchids. This controlled burn unfortunately occurred at a time when the flower was in bud rather than the preferred post pollination period. We need to do more to protect our native flora before it is all lost.

Blue Sun orchids closing for the day at sunset. Sun orchids only open when there is enough light and warmth in the air to meet their diva-like requirements. These tall gems cover the countryside in late Spring across the Southwest and have many different subspecies.

It took a season of looking at orchids before we realized there was another whole genus of orchids that we had overlooked. Though these leek orchids look far more similar to the types of orchids found across Europe, the main genus in Western Australia is Caladenia and they are often much shorter in height with completely different morphology than most of the Prasophyllum genus. The Frilled Leek Orchid was one of the first leeks that we found on our own, once we knew what type of flower to look for.

BEFORE: the very last photo I have of her beautiful mermaid hair before her first ever haircut at age four years and nine months. Half of her hair was snipped away in mere minutes. I felt mixed parts of happiness at her excitement and utter sadness at yet another sneaky reminder that my only baby is growing up so quickly before my eyes. I found myself watching quietly as her curls fell into silent swirls on the floor. Stepping back I captured memories of this occasion for us to celebrate her special visit to the hairdresser... stepping forward I crouched low to kiss her warm head before collecting her soft, sun kissed caramel and chocolate locks of hair from the floor. Am I mad for doing this? To treasure her hair?? My thoughts drifted to wondering about when she will lose her first tooth... Can you relate? If so, please share how you store locks of hair from their first haircut as a tiny keepsake of their youth. When I look at this photo I see a little girl struggling to stand still when she’d much rather run in the sprinkling rain with her dog. Tiny droplets dust her nose and hair. I just love her expression! How old were your babies when they had their first haircut? #firsthaircut #childhoodunplugged #mermaidhair

And then it was. To everyone I met, whether freshman year or senior year, thank you. To everyone I've shot with, thank you. To everyone who believed in my abilities, thank you. To everyone, thank you. All of my best memories came in these last 1,360 days. I couldn't be more grateful and humbled by everyone I encountered over these last four years. Return to Buffalo, I know not when, but when I do...let's go Buffalo! #GoGriffs #portraitsociety #collectivelycreate #creativesontherise #creativesculture #livefolktakeover #visualauthority #canon #canonusa #canonaustralia #canoncanada #letsgosomewhere #roamtheplanet #visualambassadors #brendannorthinspired #gameoftones #portraitgames #aovportraits #discoverportrait #portraitgames #ig_masterpiece #bringyourcuriosity #compassunion #gramkilla #revolukin #portraitinspire #roamingwomen #buffalo #igersbuffalo #theinstagramcreatives

Spent an enjoyable weekend out surveying numbers and locations of Pygmy orchids in the Wheatbelt with our local conservation group. First orchid hunt for the season for me and happy to see this Autumn orchid for the first time. Also successfully road tested the 2 month old baby on her first trip into the bush! Swipe through to see the preferred rich leaf litter habitat of this orchid. To give you an idea of the tiny size of these orchids, the first image features an ant so you can appreciate the small scale.
