Even ugly can be pretty.

The aloes are flowering from May to around September and there are a wide variety of birds making use of the bounty of nectar and palatable petals available as a smorgasbord for our avian friends, This must be one of the most ungainly birds, and really drab, but just sometimes, they show an inner beauty that is astounding. ~ Speckled Mousebird, Colius striatus, Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, Roodepoort ~ D3S 13029W
