During my long, wet walk today from Coolum Beach to Noosa Heads to raise money for cancer research, I managed to take a few shots despite the unrelenting drizzle. This sweet ground orchid that I've discovered is called white fingers (or petalochilus catenatus), caught my eye on the last slog into Noosa, no doubt because my head was bent and I was looking at the ground, wishing I was home.
The main road runs adjacent to some of the Noosa National Park and this little beauty was approx 10 cm off the pavement. Despite not wanting to stop, worrying that I might find it too difficult to get up and keep going, I stopped to take 2 quick shots and managed to get back up to continue. There was another a few paces further along but I didn't stop, not wanting to fall back into the pack.
Perhaps I'll return one day, when I get feeling back in my legs and not for the whole 20 km (shudder). Portions of the walk were very interesting and I'd love a more leisurely look, in better weather.
