Aloe (Flower)

These gorgeous Aloe flowers are at the end of their flowering season - this
 was a lucky find, one because you don't often see the yellow variety
(well I don't anyway) and these flower spikes show the more
advanced flowering phase, something we generally miss,
as at this stage the spring blooms, tend to be more interesting. 
As a bonus, I  managed to capture an ant (above), and a bee (image below) !!!

the bee was intentional, the ant? well just luck I guess
