Baileys Rocks, Wimmera: almost missed them

Turning back towards the car park after exploring the rocks and creek, I almost didn’t see these tiny slaty helmet-orchids, with only their blackish caps visible until I got onto my hands and knees for a proper look. My first thought was that they were tiny black toadstools. This is the first time I’ve seen them, and looked them up in my identification book when I got home.
