Flowers of the Eastern Cape #16 - Happy Spring Day

Despite the aridness, the Steenbokmelkbos (Euphorbia burmannii) are making a beutiful splash of colour throughout the Karoo at the moment.

These plants also seem to attract the flies. I did not try smelling them for fear of getting a fly up my nose.

I have to drive up to Jhb at the end of the month so hopefully I will get some Karoo scenes along the way.

these flowers really light up the dry area, don't they? and the fly seems to be enjoying himself quite well. great capture. have a wonderful day.
