At last, the Black Orchid

Renee and I went searching for orchids in the Vogelgat Reserve this morning and were rewarded with both the Blue (Disa purpurescens) and the Black (Acrolophia ustulata) Orchids.  Needless to say we would not have found the latter without careful directions by Giorgio, as they are really small and very shy.

Vogelgat was a sight to behold, with many blooms in evidence and I attach a few photos for my readers.
