Caladenia radialis - Drooping Spider Orchid

This orchid is distinctive with the dorsal sepal drooping back (hence the common name) rather than held up. It occurs in many habitats ranging from coastal areas north of Geraldton to the wheatbelt toward the south coast. Note that when the flowers first open, the dorsal sepal is upright. It droops back a few days afterwards.
