Southern Double Collared Sunbird

Southern Double Collared Sunbird

Cape Point, South Africa, 28 April 2012
EOS 7D & 400mmf4DO and x1.4 TC. 1/640 sec f4.0 ISO 1600 

Cape Point is a tourist trap at the end of the peninsula but the area between the car park and the sea was devoid of people and held a few birds on the dull morning I was there. This delightful sunbird was better behaved than most, and happily kept on singing from a nicely exposed perch as I managed to get reasonably close. Despite the poor conditions, this is adequately sharp and provides a good memory of this otherwise rather depressing spot.
