This flower is so elusive! I found one flower, and marked the spot so I would find it when I returned with my camera. Alas! I did not find it. It’s color is very similar to the ground in which it grows, and it’s so slender and skinny that even fully opened flowers are easily missed.

The plant itself is not that difficult to find, though it is a small plant that sometimes is halfway covered with sand.
