The white and green flowers of the Coast Piperia (Piperia elegans), one of two orchids found on Bodega Head, photographed on 28 July 2013.

These pictures are thanks to Peter, from whom I first learned that orchids grew here...and David and Mike, who have continued to remind me that this species was just about ready to bloom.  Thank you!

Here's a view of the entire inflorescence, magically emerging from the earth.
