I have only recently discovered that the reason I hadn't seen these striped beauties before, is that they typically only flower following a fire.
I found lots of beautiful native flowers, and got to take in the sea of golden canola we encountered on the drive.
What a year it's been for me, full of exciting, and sometimes daunting changes. For now, please enjoy my 2015 collection of images.
Western Australia is well known for its spectacular wildflowers during spring, thousands flock from all over the world to see them. However, there are many types of wildflowers that also bloom during summer (and I suspect, periodically throughout the year too, as so many of our plants are evergreens).
Last weekend me, Jesse and his partner, Bec, caught up for a little stroll around some local parkland to capture some of the lovely wild orchids and other plants. Anyway, these are some of my favourite photos from the day. I'm pondering entering one of the orchid pictures in the South Perth Emerging Artist awards.
The plant (Crotalaria Cunninghamii) belongs to a legume family called Fabaceae and it's native to northern Australia.
