Lithops aucampiae

Lithops are normally grown as species, rather than hybrids, although there are numerous varieties within species. Southern hemisphere species, they retain the southern spring and flower in our autumn

I am not absolutely sure of species names in my collection, the labels long-faded. That said, I think that the other species in the background is L. karasomontana var bella. Some species have white flowers, others have yellow ones.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9, hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye.

Harold

I'm not sure what you mean. To clarify, the stone-like objects are the plants, each with just two hugely swollen succulent leaves.

Re: Lithops aucampiae

The tubular yellow flowers are about to open. I have shot more images today to show how the original one looks when finished. The red-orange filaments have contracted to pile up the cream stamens in the middle of the flower.

The stereo is crosseye. Some images are crops.
