Show us your mesembs, in flower or not.
Heres one of mine, Lithops hookeri, taken with my phone, hopefully setting a suitably low bar to encourage all those shy photographers out here :grin:

This flower sat patiently for a couple of weeks before we finally got a sunny enough day to bloom, worth the wait, imho

First time poster. Hope this works. I think you can all guess what the plants are, no prizes for that.

Well!: a fantastic array of pictures to choose from. Judging is very hard.
It was particularly nice to see entries from those who dont normally post into this part of the forum.

My favourites in flower were Sheila's picture of P. nelii, and Rods picture of L. leslei.

However for sheer Artyness I am going to give the prize to Suculentia's almost abstract yin/yang picture of Lithops hallii C045.
Over to you to pick November's subject. :grin:
