Very beautiful Southern Double-collared Sunbird in fantastic sharpness, details and bright colours. The flowers and background are a bit over exposed, but the bird is beauty!
I am not a bird expert at all but the name should read Greater Double-collared Sunbird (Cynnyris afer) as I learnt from one of my previous uploads here. However, I am not sure that it has a double collar. Maybe it is a different species. Steve Pryor (Cuckooroller), who is an expert on birds, will definitely be able to sort that one out.
The image is very good indeed and a great pleasure to view. The colours are fantastic and the composition equally so. Well done.
Nice capture with excellent pose and colour,beautiful composition and clarity.My regards_Joy
Superb photo, excellent detail and perfect exposure. The colours are very beautiful.
Nicely posed from a good point of view.
