Black-eyed Bulbul on Aloe vryheidensis

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.
