Wow…can’t believe the response to yesterday’s upload! Thanks so much, all, and HUGE thanks to Cathy (Holmewood) and Hilary (DolphinLady) for their wonderful User Awards.
Now then…here’s something taken the day before the dragonfly shot. Also in the garden and with the same cam. Had a fiddle-dee-dee to (a) get it sharper and nicer-looking, and (b) get rid of the background ‘cos it was way too distracting for me.
This is a female Olive-Backed Sunbird, a daily visitor. We have other sunbirds now and then but this one is the regular.
Gonna upload and run and will catch up on your pics tomorrow. Eyelids going on strike.
**By the way, the red spiky thing in yesterday’s shot is the unopened bracts of a heliconia inflorescence. To be precise, a Heliconia latispatha.
