For some reason I have been interested in these plants for many years - although I still dont take many picture of them. One of a long list of photographic resolutions for this year was to rectify this omission. Woodlands and especially rain forests are great places to look for these plants.
Of course the very places that they grow do not always lend themselves to photography. They are lovers of dark dampness, places of dripping shade.
These are rather hasty pictures taken while the whole family was suffering from attack from waves of leaches! Under the circumstances I rather like them. (The pictures that is, not the leaches!)
They were taken in a smallish patch of rainforest - Mavista Rain Forest - on Bruny Island, Tasmania.
More to follow as the year turns.
You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday.
Enjoy the images.
