Another tough day - my daughter turned 26. I have not seen her since January 2019. Events and cross state lockdowns have seen to that. Also my wife's father's birthday. He turned 90. She went to see him and to have lunch with him and to take him shopping.
King parrots cheer me up - this one is a youngster a bit reticent to come down for seed. Took a while. Not in the mood to do anything. Did finish writing up investing post for a 2nd portfolio - different to the other

Mood not improving. Mowed the front lawn to get some steps in. My wife got back as I was finishing. She had a good time with her father - he was upbeat.
Went for a late walk to look for acianthus orchids. Went up off the track and found flowers high up the rocks
Small mosquito orchid - acianthus pusillus. Collected one leech on my leg while I was photographing. I hate them.
Did spy a spider moving around near this orchid - smaller than a pinhead
Back down the slope - found green form of same orchid but got a leech up my back. Light was low for photos and I wanted away. Another day.
Went along the track to check on sharp greenhoods - a few new flowers.
This one not yet showing its labellum - maybe tomorrow
One last chiloglottis sylvestris flower
Dinner: Pizza cooked outdoors under a starry sky
Rained not long after.
Trade action: Sold STEEM for BTC - will reduce STEEM dramatically and divert some to HIVE. Rest not decided. Bought more CSGN.SW via options
