Every year around this time the aloes start to flower. When they flower, they are visited by the Sunbirds. Bird photographers, or people who just love photographing birds, will then go to the various well known places for spotting these little birds and snap away.
Sometimes one is at the right place at the right time to witness something quite incredible. While visiting the Walter Sisulu Botanical gardens we were lucky enough to see this little night adder attempting to eat this huge frog. Now this does not seem to be an unusual thing for night adders, but it is probably best if they are left alone to finish their meal.
As more and more people started gathering around the night adder gave up on its meal and decided to call it a day, slithering past us in the flower beds.
