Wilsons Promontory

10 July 2011

Got a tip so made a late decision to return to the Prom to see the double-headed Pelicans orchid Anzybas unguiculatus I found over a month ago. I was surprised to hear it was in excellent condition considering about three weeks ago the first flower looked like it was fading just as the second flower was nearly ready. When I got there I found my original double-header had long since withered away but only a few centimetres away another had taken its place! What are the odds of such a rarity striking twice.
