Caption: Scorched protea plants a month after a severe wildfire swept through the area. Many protea plants only release their seeds and produce new growth after natural fires. However, in many parts of South Africa, protea populations are under threat by frequent fires, often caused by humans. Photographed in 2015 in the Silvermine Nature Reserve, Table Mountain National Park, Cape Peninsula, Cape Town, South Africa.
