This pic was taken on the Flycatcher trail in Punda Maria in December. Not able to identify it though.

Looks like a white Black eyed susan?

This is such a fun topic! I've never even took notice of the flowers unless I happen to pass one at reception or at a picnic spot... In 2009 I remember driving around and the corner of my eye caught a pink & yellow fluff - I thought it was a child's hair elastic that for some or other reason got stuck in a tree... Then later that day we stopped at a picnic site and as I walked to our car, my eye caught sight of a bush full of "elastics", it opened up a whole new world...

naomi c - I absolutely LOVE your pic of the Yellow Cleome. You can't remember where about you saw this beauty and you don't know if it's a seasonal flower?

Thank you Hanlie! :thumbs_up:

If I remember correctly the pics of the Cleomes were taken in the vicinity of Klopperfontein in summer, but as far as I know it is found throughout KNP.

Thank you naomi c
We are in going to Kruger in Oct (first time going that time of the year - we usually go either in Dec or Aug). I've made a mental note to look out for these beauties!! :cam:
Have a good day!
