Mauritius and Pamplemousses garden

Back to our November journey and a chance for me to SEE, with my own two eyes, some of the plants I know only from IDing iNat obs.

Hiking among wildflowers
in the mountains

Cape Peninsula Lifelist

Lifelist is buggy?

821 species today.

The formal list is

iNat's places shows me at 778 species

Disa ferruginea doesn't show up on my 'lifelist' but it is on the other 2.
778 versus 821 species - will have to stumble after both numbers.

800 Cape Peninsula species today

Added a robber fly. Synolcus?

Only 4 900 to go - but the top 3 include penguins ... that's easy, Boulders beach is down the road.

(750 on 24 Sept 2023) For this plant person my last 3 are associated animals.

September wildflower hikes from 2023

Playing catchup.


I wonder about the geology of that ridge of boulders @raylantalbot ?
I only realised today I can use my iNat calendar in map mode to see exactly where we walked. The rocks ridge out to sea, but the landward side is a barrier of loose boulders. Don't see that anywhere else that we walk.

Mountain fires and Great Southern Bioblitz

We have spent the last few days between 2 mountain fires. Spotter plane and helicopters in an aerial ballet with their water bombs.

Looking back at beach blobs for my contribution to GSB instead of smoke and ash.

1 700 notifications and counting

Plus the @mentions, and what trickled in during the last week.
I have caught up.

Now I can concentrate on IDing for GSB.

Then, when that dust has settled, I will upload my own pictures.
