I spy some small flowers, a rather thin scattering of blossoms compared to the previous image.

You most definitely should

Quick fun fact: The Cape floristic kingdom is the smallest of the six in the world and has over 9,000 vascular plant species, of which more than two thirds are endemic.

I presume you are referring to the Western Cape Floristic kingdom!

Butterflies rule!

The very same. It's tiny! And yet it has more than 6000 endemic plant species and five endemic plant families. That's something you can expect for places like Australia or Madagascar, but the tip of mainland Africa? The downside, of course, is that it also holds about 70 % of Southern Africa's threatened species.



Oh, and sorry for going off-topic. I did not mean to indicate that I spied the world

Please carry on...
