West Coast National Park 2014: Part 6

Every year between 1 August and 30 September I try to visit the West Coast National Park to capture the flowers, wildlife and landscapes.

As I am posting I am trying to identify the flowers. I am using mostly books by John Manning a botanist at the SA National Biodiversity Institute in Cape Town. I am also very privileged to have him on my email list. My husband told him about my love for photographing flowers and he said if I need help identifying them I must just send him an email…. So that is what I am doing first trying to identify it with my books and then if I still can’t identify or I am not sure I’ll send him a photo. So far my track record is quite good. Only one or two that I really don’t know. If for some reason I have not identify a plant don’t worry I will come back and update the post.
