Gloriously gold

Petals absorbing sunshine

Glow exquisitely


Daisy and bee 2

This exquisite flower, an orange Cape Daisy, entices insects to itself, with alluring scents and ultraviolet markings, hidden to us. Here is a Cape honey bee making use of all this bounty, though I don’t think it’s the same little guy from my garden the other day!

How lucky are we, to enjoy Nature’s beauty, even if it was never meant for us!


Flower seen at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Cape Town.

    Exquisite is the perfect description for this flower and the busy bee. This gorgeous flower sounds like it’s a one-stop smorgasbord for bees! You take the greatest pictures of nature. I love daisies, but this one is exceptional. Thank you for sharing it with us.
