Quaqua swanepoelii flowering in habitat

The rare Stapeliad Quaqua swanepoelii has a very restricted distribution and is mainly limited to the area around Calvinia and Loeriesfontein (the so-called "Nieuwoudtville Plateau" in the Northern Cape, South Africa). This Quaqua was seen flowering in habitat about 25km North-West of Calvinia.
