    Wow, are those really vultures? They don't seem to fit into this idyllic environment at all. Astonishing!

    Hi Georgina, I also love sunbirds (see the photo I posted above) and also the Whydahs - they are amazing with their extra long tails! The first time I saw one, I was sitting in my parked car and the bird kept coming close and making such a show - it must have been flirting with its reflection in the car window. Adorable!

    DSC_0647We are lucky to have amazing bird life here in Cape Town. My favourites are the Sunbirds and Mousebirds that frequent my garden, although the latter like to wreack havok in my garden, especially with the granadilla. They are such characters! :) I found them on the wall represented by the Sugarbird and Red-Faced Mousebird in Southern Africa. Yesterday I was super lucky to capture a Double Collared Sunbird with my camera finally - and in front of Table Mountain as well!

    Great work, both of you! My kids (10 and 12) might also join me soon :)

    Very nice!!! I also like that you thought of labelling the colours.

    first attempt Getting the proportions right was most difficult. I would not have noticed the black in the wing feathers and the brown on the bird's belly if I hadn't paid such great attention to it trying to capture it. I kept thinking that I probably would not have noticed any of this either, had the bird been sitting on a twig near me, about to fly off any second.
