Cape Sugarbird (Promerops cafer) on king protea (Protea cynaroides)

    Newer Older

    Cape Sugarbirds, male. I was lucky, shooting with a 90 mm macro lens when the birds landed in front of my face, on the flower I was photographing. It happened TWICE, which has never happened ONCE before in 20 years!
