Jackals Dans Revisited

On Friday, the ‘Fanatics’ spent the day at Jackals Dans, the fynbos private nature reserve that occupies the mountain between Hawston and Vermont.  As usual, the main quarry at this time of year, in an area that has recently been burnt, was Orchids. Luckily, quite a few were found, along with a total of 73 species recorded for the day.  Some examples of what was seen are shown below.
