Insects on Euphorbia in Augrabies National Park

During March on a tour to Augrabies National Park, the Euphorbia were in bloom and a host of all types of butterflies, moths, bees and other insects were busy pollinating them. A feast for the eyes!!

You got some great shots. The entire park was a feast for the eyes. I could certainly spend more time in Augrabies.
