Looks pretty stunning with the magnifier.
At Hat Head, someone has planted this beautiful Protea bush on the grass verge outside their house. From a short distance away, the bush looks like it's covered with glowing torches. This shot shows the flowers in various stages; the black bit on the left is one that's finished. Proteas originate in South Africa but are related to the Australian Banksias so have many similarities and grow easily here.
