Black-eyed Bulbul on Aloe vryheidensis

    Newer Older

    A Black-eyed Bulbul (Pycnonotus barbatus) is enjoying the Wolkberg Aloe (Aloe vryheidensis, once called Aloe dolomitica) flower nectar.

    Note: "Wolk berg" is translated "Cloud Mountain" ; "Vryheid" means "Freedom" and "Dolomite" tells us where this Aloe likes to grow.

    Spring, 1 September 2007, South Africa.
