Male White-Bellied Sunbird.
As the light began to fade, I was having a coffee on the stoep when I heard him chirping away to my right.
I went inside and fetched the Sony cyber shot. I knew he would pay a visit to the Aloes before he turned in for the evening so activated the zoom and focused in that general area. For a shot like this using the zoom I am finding it almost impossible to have enough time to focus, and more so for a bird like this, and it’s a small wonder I managed a shot at all. From reading camera reviews this is a common gripe. But I reckon I still need a lot more practice. 🙂
However, even with his back to us, isn’t he gorgeous?
