Proteaceae, Leucospermum spp?, Kakamega Forest, Kenya

October 5, 2009

Found this small tree/large shrub growing on the top of an otherwise sparsely vegetated hill near the Kakamega forest in Western Kenya. Not sure what species it is, It looks like a Proteaceae, maybe a species of Leucospermum?

The flowers are spectacular, at times covered with bees, especially in the early morning (when I took this photo).
