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.
