Bonnet Orchid
Bonnet Orchid
The other common name is tartan orchid - it's easy to see why. It belongs to a collective group known as 'Tongue Orchids' due to the shape of the single leaf that protudes from the ground looking somewhat like a tongue. I had walked past several plants before I noticed one, despite their strong colour they blended perfectly into the surrounding vegetation.
