Normally only hear these, or occasionally lucky to see one as it flies off having been disturbed. But this one kindly flew off and then sat on a rock not far away rather than disappearing deep back into the fynbos.

Description

Our hardest-won find of the year: Protea holosericea (EN), the Saw-Edge Sugarbush.

Climbed about 1200m with @muisvoel and @wernert95 on a bone-dry mountain in a heatwave with this as our objective. We wanted to bail, but we were too far in. We cried, we laughed, we persevered. We set up camp in their habitat: "Steep, harsh, arid, and extremely rocky areas." We woke to find ourselves shrouded in thick mist, but with renewed determination. Up we went, towards the peak, and found precisely ONE plant, flowering, though with no heads in their prime. (There were a few skeletons around.) Still, we were stoked. Inspired, we bagged Rabiesberg, which is just as well cos we're not rushing to go back. (Note to self: routes that look perfectly do-able on Google Earth are imperfectly do-able on real earth.) The prospect of a cold one at Saggy Stone made for a speedy descent.
