    Flying Duck Orchid #Orchids #7AwesomeJills #Gardening #Garden #FlyingDuckOrchid #DuckOrchid

  • Eric Lavergne

    Caleana major, also known as the Flying Duck Orchid, is a small orchid found in eastern and southern Australia. This terrestrial plant features a remarkable flower, resembling a duck in flight. The flower is an attractant to insects, such as male sawflies which pollinate the flower in a process known as pseudocopulation. In 1986 this orchid was featured on an Australian postage stamp.

Japanese Orchids. If these smell good... these could quite possibly be my new favourite flower! :D

The light can not exist without the darkness both in the physical world and within our psyche. We took a chance agreeing to be born. Some carried deep childhood scars that operate in the experience through out life. But Joy IS our birth right and we can not achieve this with out accepting what is difficult in ourselves and in this world.
