july 24 - kirstenbosch

today the team worked at base all morning, processing plant specimens. John Silander joined the group, so there were more baboon jokes. In the afternoon, we went to Kirstenbosch, which is a truly fabulous botanical gardens. The girls bought more jerky (just general "game" jerky) to replace that stolen by the baboons. We have many gorgeous botanical photos from today (pelergoniums, protias, ericas), but will post just a few, mostly that have birds in them. You *really* need to click on them to see the birds. Both plants and birds were very pretty.

  1. What's the large bird in the middle photo? Looks like some sort of water bird--is it?
