Pretty, but that looks like the bloom of Dichrostachys cinerea

Dichrostachys cinerea, known as sicklebush, Bell mimosa, Chinese lantern tree or Kalahari Christmas tree (South Africa), is a legume of the genus Dichrostachys in the Fabaceae family.

EDIT TO ADD: Apologies. “Rabbit’s foot acacia” is yet another screwed up common name. This is both a Dichrostachys AND an Acacia. Aren’t common names fun?:face_with_symbols_over_mouth:
