Spring_winecupsThe idea that sexual behavior can create a reproductive boundary that leads to speciation goes all the way back to Darwin. So I am not surprised to read about a study of south African passerines that observes this up close. (Cite.)

Our winecups started blooming a couple of weeks back. I tend to view them as our first wildflower, marking the start of spring. The phacelia sneaks in earlier, but is subtle. The winecups are showy — the photo likely doesn’t do them justice.
