My best from Newlands Forest and Rhodes Memorial Cape Town

Protea Nitida. This species flowers throughout the year. Note the African bees assisting in the pollination of the flower.

Protea Nitida

This is a species referred to as Gladiolus Maculatus. Flowering March to July and found mainly in clay slopes in Renosertveld in the South western and Eastern Cape.

This beautiful specimen is referred to by its scientific name as Gladiolus Priorii. This species flowers from April to June and is found on sandstone and granite slopes in the South Western Cape.

This species is referred to as the hairy legged or Web Spider. They often dwell on branches and feed off unheralded prey such as grasshoppers.

This wild mushroom is growing out of a pine cone. Fungus are known to help in the decomposition process. This is a good depiction of decomposition.
