Aspects Of A King – 4

King Protea Series - 4
Have a wonderful weekend!

“Commonly, the outside part of the flower head of the King Protea has spiky projections that are either pink or red and its center is usually lilac in color. The cape sugarbird (Promerops cafer) feeds on its nectar. As the bird drinks the nectar, the King Protea deposits pollen on the bird’s forehead. The bird then flies to another King Protea, pollinating it.”
