There is by no means an abundance of colour at this time of year, drab browns and tawny grass dominate the landscape, although there are a few exceptions.
Impala lilies have made an appearance in recent blogs, adding colour to the bush but they are not the only bit of colour around.
Aloes of all sorts burst into flower at this time of year and attract an array of sugar loving birds and bees to their sweet colourful flowers.
The timing of the different pollinators is slightly staggered but it makes for an incredible spectacle over a few weeks in the winter months.
What other colour jumps out at you at this time of year in the bush?

Awesome pics. Love the aloes in winter.
Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful aloe flowers with us, together with the stunning sunbirds & bees that enjoy them! The Malachite is another sunbird that loves Aloes, do you get it there?
Wonderful photos Simon and Trevor, thank you for sharing!
Stunning photos – thanks guys.
Excellent theme Simon and incredible photographs. The sunbird pics are incredible.
Beautiful shots of flowers and pollinators. I enjoy this blog not only for big 5 and big cats (which are awesome), but for the other wildlife and topics encountered. So please keep those photos of flowers and birds and bees and other interesting creatures coming (along with the bigger animals).
Especially love the last shot – beautiful!
