Its amazing what a camera with a good macro can do! Nevertheless, the
arachnorchis are surprising re dimensions. Tip to tip, the parva's are est.
4 inches, while some venustas are 8 inches tip to tip. Their slimline
features are deceptive - make these look smaller. Some of the West
Australian spiders are larger again, some reaching 12 inches tip to tip.
Cheers,
Peter

Sometimes it's the smaller flowers which are (with, of course, a good
photographer's intervention!) the most photogenic - I especially like the
C.parva and C.stricta. What dramatic flowers!

How nice to have native orchids. Ours are not so impressive. At least to
my eye.

There is one Cyp californicum, that grows outside my location, as well
as Cyp montanum (I think) which is north and in the Sierra. What I've
seen around here is various Goodyeara type orchids.

Kathy,

According to Ron Parsons, the closest naturally occurring Cypripediums to
the Bay Area are just west of Yosemite.

There is a historical record of Cypripedium californicum on Mt. Tamalpais
but the last sighting was a collection that went into an herbarium!
