Oranjeborssuikerbekkie

Matching colors, this Orange-Breasted Sunbird has the same coloring as the Orange Pincushion Flower. The Orange-breasted Sunbird is the only member of the bird genus Anthobaphes, the scientific name is Anthobaphes Violacea. But don't you love the Afrikaans translation: Oranjeborssuikerbekkie? Spotted at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Cape Town, South Africa
