Mornington Peninsula

5 October 2011

Spent the day looking around various sites on the Mornington Peninsula for orchids. It was a reasonable day but despite fruitless searching I only found species in known locations. I saw 13 species of orchid — all photographed below. Towards the end of the day I spotted a Common/Lowland Copperhead Austrelaps superbus catching the thinning afternoon rays under a grasstree.
