Flower of the Day: Leucospermum lineare, known as “The Vulnerable”

Published on yesterday’s blog, and a flower I am sure I won’t be able to resist photographing many more times.  This delicate pincushion is on the fynbos red list and we are very happy to see it thriving here.  It is not the only one; I wouldn’t quite call it a colony, but we do have a few of them.  Luckily they are largely inaccessible to flower hunters and enthusiastic photographers.
