Cape Town yesterday morning

The first picture is shot from the back entrance of the Mount Nelson Hotel at around 5:30 AM. Than I turned myself around for the second picture and pictured Signal Hill (next to Table Mountain).

Heads of Medusae

The Euphorbia caput medusae originates from the fynbos area in the Western Cape, South Africa and is, according to scientists, most probably endemic to Table Mountain. The sap of this succulent plant is highly poisonous. The plant is also known as Heads of Medusae. It’s always a pleasure to photograph the flower heads.

The story of Dassie and the elephant

One day, a long, long time ago (long before the first European settlers set foot on Table Mountain),  Dassie and the elephant were crossing a wooden bridge somewhere in the Overberg region in the Western Cape, South Africa.

Says Dassie to the elephant: “Together we make a lot of noise … don’t we cousin?”
