Bee Orchid

BOTANICAL

Despite being bisected by a railway line, a high-tension power line and a highway, this park still has some beautiful orchids. The Bee Orchid (Caladenia discoidea) was less than 50 metres from Roe Highway in remnant vegetation adjoining Jandakot Airport. It was glistening from some isolated afternoon rain showers.
