LEMON-SCENTED SUN ORCHID

Lemon-scented sun orchid, Thelymitra antennifera

Western Australia’s granite outcrops are home to a myriad of plant life such as this yellow-scented sun orchid. Shooting in the direction of the setting sun, I manually focused on one flower sitting up above the others. The low angle and large telephoto lens combined to create the pleasing blur.
