Malachite Sunbird with a honeybee very close to him!
I left the shadows in the bacground so that the wings can be seen.

Hello Steve,
Remarkable photo of this bird in superb sharpness and details. Splendid colours. But I miss the feet and tail. The hoverfly is a nice bonus.

Hi Steve,this pic is absolutely fantastic! What a spectacular capture of the metallic colors of the plumage in the best light and correct exposure,the details too are the best! And what a perfection on the in flight bee too,maybe only a lucky coincidence,but very very nice! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
