Flowering Impala Lily
Photo Details: The brilliant red and white flowers of an impala lily (Adenium multiflorum) add a splash of color to the winter scenery, Ndumo Game Reserve, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Canon Rebel XSi 12.2MP) on a tripod; Lens: Canon EF70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM; Focal Length: 300mm; Shutter speed: 1/125; Aperture: f5.6; ISO: 100; 29 July 2009, 8.07am.
Additional Info: The impala lily, a shrub with succulent stem and branches, is quite small – usually around waist height – but can reach 3 to 4m (10 to 13ft) under favorable conditions. It flowers in winter, its pretty white flowers with red fringes providing welcome color, particularly towards the end of winter when much of the bushveld vegetation is dry and brown.
