Wildflower walk: The Spectacles

In case you haven’t guessed, I’m a details person … which is why I love using my macro lens (Canon 60mm f/2.8) as much as possible. Yesterday we headed to The Spectacles Wetlands for some wildflower spotting and this time we were lucky to find a few spider orchids (and the sunglasses that fell out of my pocket while I was crouching in front of a flower). I’m looking forward to going down south in two weeks to see if I can find some different flowers, but for now, here are some of yesterday’s finds. The area was subjected to a big bush fire last summer and it was heartening to discover so many flowers had germinated.
