Some Fernkloof Orchids

A walk to Aasvoelkop on Friday with a very enthusiastic orchid group revealed some interesting plants which have really come into their own since the recent fires in the area. The two most prominent species were Satyrium stenopetalum and Disa cylindrica.  There were literally hundreds of them in bloom, but we were also privileged to see a few rarer varieties and these are shown below.  I particularly like the image of the botanists at work!

Thank you Liz and Sandy for helping with the names.  As you can see I still need a few.
