On one of the walks at Betty’s Bay we came across this striking red flower growing straight out of the ground … It was in a patch of coastal scrub and seemed so out of place. I had to touch it to check that it was real because it looked almost plastic like. Nature is always so suprising and beautiful. I WISH I had a macro lens becuase then the clarity would be 100 times better. How many wishes does it take till it comes true? Oh well.
