Here Are Some of Our Favourite Spring Flower Entries So Far

We thought we’d share some of our favourite posts with you.

Our annual spring flowers competition has been a feast for the eyes of late and we thought we’d share some of our favourite entries from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

There’s still loads of time to enter, so keep using the hashtag #TravelLikeALocalZA for a chance to win. Our top prize is a two-night stay for two at Gondwana Game Reserve worth R18 000. We’ve also got loads of prizes from West Coast Tourism for our runner ups as well as an L7 Craft Beer hamper. Find out more about the prizes up for grabs as well as how to enter here.

Painting the Town Orange

It seems the pets love the West Coast wildflowers as much as we do and Nick Wren was able to capture a very happy doggo amongst the daisies. Maybe save this pic for next year’s Dog Photographer of the Year competition, Nick.

The great thing about wildflower season is that it makes us stop and smell the daisies. Jasmine did just that in this lovely entry. Just don’t forget to tread lightly. For more flower spotting tips, click here.

We love that Werner Reyneke got down low to capture the daisies from another perspective.

Fields of Gold

The canola fields in the Overberg are always a treat for the eye and Timothy Visser managed to snap a couple of fields at the height of their bloom.

We love that Suzette Vivier managed to include our July cover star, the Aloe ferox, in her pic.

Pretty in Pink

There’s much to be admired in the West Coast National Park at the moment as can be seen in this snap from the Bay Gallery in Langebaan.


Flower Friends

The great thing about the spring flowers is we get to see some birding action too. In this entry, Matt Kennedy is keeping us all informed about sunbirds.

If you look carefully inside the arum lilies, you might just spot a friendly frog. The arum lily frog (Hyperolius horstockii) uses the flower as camouflage during the day. So keep your eyes peeled.

It seems that the birds aren’t the only ones out to see the flowers. Stuart Hancock spotted this tortoise amongst the daisies.

Shake your tailfeather. Callum Evans snapped this sugarbird at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens.

We’re so impressed with Joubert Heymans’ image of a Blue crane in a Hantam flower field.
