Cape Sugarbird

By Rev2
Hi all, many thanks for all your votes and comments on my Barn Owl shot, very much appreciated.

I've been inspired to re-visit my shots from South Africa whilst planning for my trip next year. Here's a Cape Sugarbird taken in the grounds of the cottage we stayed in near Betty's Bay. Fantastic birds which feed on Protea flowers, the background is completely natural.

Happy Easter Sunday!
