A Burst Of Colour On A Dreary Cape Morning

Iris This Iris put a real smile on my face when I saw it in the garden, it is the first one to flower so far and because it is a grey, rainy day in Cape Town today, I picked it and put it on my kitchen window. It has lifted my spirits completely, now it can carry on raining all day. I have a rainbow on my windowsill.

White Daisies At Springtime

White daisies Love the spring flowers that are carpeting the West Coast National Park right now. Spectacular colours and you need to get down to ground level to see the real gems, tiny orchid like blossoms and many more. Got to go back before the end of September, before the Postberg part of the park closes again. Want to get some more pics of the baby zebra and the baby bontebok.

Cormorant Playing Pick Up Sticks

Saw this White-breasted Cormorant diving with this stick then throwing it in the air catching it and diving with it again for about ten minutes. I really love the intense colour of his eye.

The Bumblebee and the Sea Rose

Captured this Bumblebee looking for something sweet.

Malachite Kingfishers getting aggressive with each other

Two Malachite Kingfishers were getting really aggressive with each other, showing off their aggressive poses. Captured this one in his threatening pose, a beautiful bird threatening or not.
