The Margaret River Region is having one of the best wildflower seasons in years. Particularly the orchids. What is it about orchids that makes us seek them out, photograph them, and marvel at their existence?

As I write this, the sun orchids are blossoming in large numbers. Will go on a photo shoot of those soon (they’re very impressive), but in the meanwhile, here are a few beauties from earlier this month. All photos were taken in the bush very close to Dunsborough. If you have any beautiful shots of orchids, please post them on our Facebook page ( We’d love to see what gems you’ve found.
