Greater double collared sunbird

By fotobee
Karoo National Desert Park Worcester

This is the same male Double Collared sunbird, seen on a honey gwharrie tree, (Euclea tormentosa), a few hundred yards away from the previous photographic spot. He was still in the throes of total infatuation with the female ! (heh heh) . The tree is one of the honey bearing sort,as can be seen on the insignificant bloom just under his beak. They are irresistible to all the nectar feeders of the area, and attract all kinds of sunbirds who quarrel fiercely over the nectar.

Thank you very much to all the people who opened, looked and voted for the female DC sunbird. A special "Thank you" to Bernie, ( BRITCHIE) for your esteemed UA which you granted to my Greater double collared sunbird a few days ago. Thank you all for the lovely comments you all give !

Best regards
