:hmz: I was thinking along the lines of a pod of some sort because of those cross-ways striations - they seem to be physical rather than just markings. But then all the furry stuff in his hands!?

It certainly is a wonderful pic for its purpose, just has me very curious! :D

lemonbalm, I've asked on the plant ID thread if anyone else thinks it is a MIL tongue so we will have to wait and see what they come up with. The fluffy bit looks like a head of some sort of grass with seeds on which just happens to be in front of his hands. You can see the stem of it going down to the ground.

Gorgeous pic. :D

Hi Ken and welcome to the wonderful world of SANParks webcams :D :D :D

Orpen has been offline for a few days so I assume the guys captured on cam are part of the technical team that helped get it back online for us :clap: :clap: :clap: :gflower: :gflower:
