Oh Nooooo, More Kibrahacha Pix
Just when you thought it was safe to visit my blog, I dug up some more pix from my photo phrenzy the other week. This latest bunch of pix can be blamed on Ellen Muller, who commented on how many pix I took of the trees. She was able to use that factoid to reassure her husband, Erwin, that her taking 90 photos of one Kibrahacha tree was perfectly normal behavior!
Drum roll, please.... that's the last of the Kibrahacha tree pictures for this year. Probably. I have a bunch of cool panoramic shots, but they won't work in the blog so you are spared for now.
This week's Bonaire Reporter newspaper has a couple nice Kibrahacha pictures taken by Johan van Blerk. (that link will work until the next edition of the Reporter is posted online) I spotted Johan's pickup truck out in the field (above) when I was on one of my photo expeditions. I wonder how many images Johan shot? An ad from the Green Label nursery is right below Johan's pictures. They say that one can buy one's own Kibrahacha tree there. Coincidence? I think not. I'll be there soon to see about adding a Kibrahacha to the Wayaka trees we have growing all over our yard.
By the way, that Bonaire Reporter issue also has some other very interesting stories, including one celebrating Captain Don's 50 years on Bonaire.
I particularly like the contrast between the yellow Kibrahacha blooms and their more or less dead looking surroundings. As seen in the photos above and below.
