The Penguin Place at Boulders Beach is a popular spot for the locals to hang out. src=”https://natureontheedge.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/20130323-150658.jpg” alt=”20130323-150658.jpg” class=”alignnone size-full” />
Seed dispersal – isn’t it a fascinating topic! Here this strezilia tree is advertising it’s pods through it’s rich orange tone. Such dynamic processes will kick in to get the seeds moving, wind, gravity, birds, mice, humans ( me in this case!) have designs on depositing the seeds in different locations. It will be interesting to track how many take root in the future.
Simon’s Town, my home town is known for it’s naval traditions, but here I capture a different maritime routine – a squadron of penguins returning from a day’s fishing. Boulder’s Beach is unique in that it has a colony of penguins situated right in the midst of a residential area. One of my favourite late afternoon walks is along a coastal path right past these characterful creatures. I used Snapseed and Pic grunger to add effect. Personally I’m not happy with the look of the photos – much prefer my DSLR!
