  1. Large Duck-orchid (Caleana major) Nice to see the ducks out again. The flowers are quite small, smaller than a 5c coin.

  10. @Kosmic, I'm not a big user of binoculars, but do have two which I use on regular basis. For fungi, and native orchids, I use Pentax 8.5x21 U-Series Papilio II. They're not bad for general purpose, but IMO, great for closeup. The other ones are Nikon Monarch 7 10x42, which I use for both birding and sport.
  11. Thank you @scuzzii. Birding is not a genre high on my list. It is photographers like @mickj1 and others, who have inspired me to go looking for birds when there are lulls in the genres I usually photograph.
