This photo gallery showcases the amazing variety of native orchids found in the south west of Western Australia. It can also be used to help identify orchids you have found. I am always willing to help in orchid identification. Photos can be sent to me using the contact page.
Please use the menu above to navigate the site. The photos are arranged by orchid genera and within genera, are arranged in groups with similar orchids placed together. Each section has a short description of the species with tips on how to distinguish different, but similar looking species. Each species has, (or will eventually have) photos of the flower, leaf, whole plant and the habitat.
I started photographing orchids in 2003 with a Canon Powershot A200. I currently use a Canon Eos 350D with a 60mm macro lens. There are approximately 400 different species of orchids in the south west of WA. I have seen approximately 227 of them.
This site is updated frequently as I photograph more orchids.
