Tree aloe with pollen collector

Aloe thraskii in bloom at the start of winter.

Thumb of 2018-12-26/Baja_Costero/f7e06e

The plant is shown here. It's a tree, with time. It has maybe a few inches of stem at this point.

How interesting to see the progressive stage of the bloom. Great detail and bee activity.

Thank You! all for the kind words. I have found that if I snap enough pictures, I'll eventually get one with both the bee and the plant in focus (more or less).

Aloe thraskii in a bot garden here after many years for comparison....
