    These guys are so tame too, you can get really close to them with the vehicle as they get fed during the winter months....

    I think the deer was escaped. Not endemic to the place I was. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Spring is in the air! Might be from the garden but they’re all indigenous so it half counts as ‘nature photos’ :)

    @A new day between your tanks and your garden, it's all just so beautiful! If I ever came to visit I don't think I'd ever be able to leave!

    Nipped out to the shops this afternoon.
    As I was parking I noticed that there was a spider web in the corner of my car’s side mirror. And the spider was in the process of tying up a wasp.

    Take aways !!

    The majority of the Mesembs (vygies) are found in South Africa. There are a few genera in Namibia, one genus in Australia and a genus or two that have naturalised in other parts of the world

    Your plant looks like a Lampranthus. They are used quite widely in cultivation in SA.
