Malachite Sunbird (Nectarinia famosa), Botriver, Western Cape, South Africa
A shot I got yesterday on the farm while walking the dogs, unfortunately he wouldn’t wait for me to move around to a better position, without twigs in the way. They are super fast and skitish.
He was earning his name, singing to the late afternoon sun. I think this shot shows off their true to colour with natural lighting.
