Beautiful Endangered Flower Ballerina Orchid Australia 1

Exotic orchids that resemble some classy dancing-girls,  with orange-ish colored petals these beautiful flowers are commonly known as the Ballerina Orchids, and as Caladenia melanema by their scientific name.

These graceful dancers are doing a pirouette with their arms raised, just like ballerinas  dancing the Black Swan. They grow one by one or in groups in different parts of Australia.  The Ballerina Orchid has been listed as “Critically Endangered” under the Australian Government.
