Apis mellifera scutellata
Me to not Botanist or Biologist.. The info you telling is different Genus... what I want to ask. Hope you understand. But your spotting is very beautifully captured. Here is big life seen..!!
Ashish, quite right. see i'm no botanist, and the only description of "Tricholepis" in both wiki and eol is: "Tricholepis is a genus of flowering plants in the daisy family." perhaps you could further describe the genus to clarify for me?The plant was already identified (thanx Wren) in a previous comment as a Bull Thistle "Cirsium vulgare". (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bull_thistl...)
We see here similar plant in India..http://www.flowersofindia.in/catalog/sli...
Asteraceae is Daisy family... These all thistle plants classified in Asteraceae...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asteraceaehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cirsium
Ashish: no it is not a daisy, it is a thistle.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thistle)
Nice..Is the Herb is Tricholepis sp..?
Wren: They are not indigenous to SA.
