Orange-breasted sunbird


I was lucky today. Just leaving Kirstenbosch when this little fellow appeared right beside the path, drinking nectar (is it blue?) from some just-opened agapanthus.


The colours are brilliant. He was quite tame - very different from the birds we saw at the top of Nursery Ravine last week, though he could easily have been one of them.

  3. Aaah, Marie-Brilliant! These are the photos I have always wanted to get and never did, even though I had both the agis and the O-B Sunbirds in the garden. Well done!!
