Aloe marlothii flowers generously present beauty in their winter blooming season to admirers and pollinators alike. This black-headed oriole will pollinate while feeding.
Interfaces between sciences such as botany, zoology, entomology, agriculture and chemistry can be explored in these blooms. Viewers with scientific, aesthetic and other motives converge on Internet flower pictures elsewhere, because the real flowers exist somewhere. Some do seek out the flowers themselves, like the converging pollinators from their diverse species origins. Every orientation in every species has its honeypot.
