Dyckia brevifolia in its habitat. Itajaí-açu river, Subida, in Santa Catarina

Ah, so tasty this pollen is...
The insect a bumble bee is preparing the future brevifolia plants and assuring us life is granted.
Life! What a treasure!
I hardly write of politics but my politic is living...
I can not stand even think of those massacres in West Nigeria and  East Iraq.
I think living is the best option in all cases.

A taste of honey!

While some look for the sweet, others also look for surviving  as scavengers ...all have a role in nature.
Vultures on the rock.
Dyckia brevifolia are fond of running water.
I am fond of

 Dyckia brevifolia in their habitat...

All this population members have light colored blooming stalk bracteas.

Blooming and kissing the clear water.

Here a better vision of the brevifolia home.

Capibara droppings and the damage they produce.
Capibaras, the biggest world rotends love  the juicy Dyckia leaves.

...and life goes on...

This srub is Raulinoa echinata also endemic to the area as Dyckia brevifolia.
Raulinoa was described by Raulino Reitzi a Brazilian priest and botanist.

Driftwood and the  poor man house.
Much still have to be done.

Te perfect hidden place to initiate living...

Grown ups and the very young in a healthy population...

Last flood audacious remains...

Above, Walter Miguel Kranz the one who best knows Dyckias in the whole world.
No one has seen and studied more Dyckia species than this man.
The Brazilian most wise Botanist in Dyckia matters.
Bellow, Clenilson Souza, the youth must learn!
