Good morning!
A while back, I was granted permission to use some of Spencer Barrett's photos of Babiana ringens on the PBS wiki. For those who haven't heard of him, he is a notable researcher from the University of Toronto. Some of his main areas of research include evolution & ecology of plant mating systems, pollination biology, and floral evolution (among many other botanically related subjects). He has done extensive research of Narcissus mating systems as well as many other genera, some bulbs. See his site here:…
I had specifically requested permission to use his photos of sunbirds feeding on Babiana ringens. The photos, and a link to the specific study on the pollination of Babiana ringens (and a few related species) have been added to the Babiana page.
