Spooky (iii)

And another not quite familiar face. Melicytus alpinus (porcupine bush) growing next to the Church of the Good Shepherd, Lake Tekapo, New Zealand. The similiarity to this plant and Melicytus dentatus is pretty amazing. To be honest I wasn't sure that this wasn't M. dentatus as I wasn't familiar with distributions. It's fun to compare this image with this image! Talk about strong family resemblance!
