It seems really appropriate that my 100th post (yes, I have been scribbling about the tip of Africa for that long) should be something that features in my daily life – besides the pets, the garden and my travels. Several pairs of sunbirds have been in and out of the garden for the last two days. At times it’s like Heathrow with all the take off and landings. They make their presence known by loud, animated twittering throughout the day, but they are damn difficult to photograph because they never stay still for long. This gorgeous male literally flew in as I was coincidentally standing around with my camera. It’s the closest I have been to one for any amount of time and I froze, too scared to move much. He’s just too magnificent not to share.
