Artist's Description

Impala Lily (Adenium multiflorum)
Oliphants River
Mpumalanga, South Africa. 2009.

Canon EOS 400D
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
f/4.5, 1/400s, ISO 200
RAW. As is.

This photo was taken on the banks of Oliphant’s River, in a rest camp in our progress from Johannesburg to Livingstone (via Kruger National Park). They were so beautiful and delicate that I couldn’t resist pulling out my macro lens (which didn’t get a huge amount of use on safari!). Meanwhile the hippos and crocodiles were cruising the river behind me – the hippos make for very interesting wake up calls in the middle of the night!

Thank you to Blair & Wildflowers of the World for identifying this flower for me!

Adenium multiflorum is small, succulent tree native to central and eastern Southern Africa. Like other members of the succulent Apocynaceae family, A. multiflorum has a milky latex with toxic alkaloids. This latex is used as an arrow poison and as a fish stunning poison. (care of Wikipedia)
