After the rain in the garden

After the rain with a glimpse of the sun: 1; Boophone haemanthoides 2; Boophone haemanthoides (detail) 3; Cotyledon sp. 4; Ferocactus sp. 5; mesembranthaceae sp. 5; white flowering Iris. The Boophone haemanthoides (“Kwaslelie’) originates from Namaqualand and is fairly rare compared to the more common Boophone disticha.

This sucker can’t get enough

Twice daily, between 10 and 11 AM and between 3 and 4 PM, this bird empties both cotyledons in the garden. Reason to give this one a special treatment (first experiment with photo processing in Topaz)
