I took these the same day I took my pepper shots (one of which is now entered in the contest) but since I don't think it right to post any pepper stuff until the competition is up (besides the one post to the contest of course) here are some others from yesterday. They're of a King Protea. For those who've never seen one, the flower is about the size of a childs head. It's really quite big.
