Black jack plant

A hover fly on the flower of the black jack plant



This black jack plant grows all the year round here in Egypt the first photo is of a young Large white egret while foraging got its neck plumage covered in black jack hook seeds

not only the birds get covered in thes barb seeds my legs some times get covered in them especially when taking photos of the dragonflies.









I could not resist this photo of what seemed to be a dead trunk of the Fever tree with all its weavel bore holes and no bark most likely been rubbed of by cattle and donkeys that have been tethered to it at one time or another. you only realize its still a living tree when you look up and see all the new foilage and all the birds that feed on its seeds during the day.
