The arrival of spring in the Addo Elephant National Park is dramatic. Look at this vast expanse of yellow:
The veld is illuminated all over by the beautiful bushes of Karoo Gold (Rhigozum obovatum):
Among the swathe of yellow are little patches of purple and mauve, made up of Wild Verbena (Pentanisia prunelloides) and Blue Karoo Daisies (Felicia filifolia):
There are also rivulets of the Common Gazania (Gazania krebsiana):
It is a lovely time of the year to celebrate the arrival of spring in the wild!
