A few sun birds.... jewels from the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town and Kirshtenbosch Botanic Gardens. The African equivalent of our hummers.

Wow Eric, glad you warned. This is really colorful.
Great collection of birds I have never seen before.
Please try to clone out some of the OOF stuff in the first image. Love that shot.

2 takes the cake for me Eric!! The blur in the first is a bit distracting 3 is a wonderful interaction shot showing the environment, extra points for that

Awesome set! I've always wanted to see sunbirds. I like all of them. 2 is my pick of the set, but 3 is pretty cool too, and 4 is such a beautiful bird. Thanks for sharing these exotic beauties.

Nice shots! I really like the composition of #1. The bird and tail feathers are at a great angle.

Thanks David...I shot these in 2009 and at the time didn't know they weren't hummingbirds
I did a little research and found out about sunbirds and while a bit disappointed at first I came to enjoy them almost as much.

Thanks Roberta...these guys just hung around a bush on top of Table Mt. and I was lucky to find them. Not all that skittish, I was able to get very close without them being scarred off.

Thanks Chris...I posted these from a "remote" location without access to the original file. I agree 100% about the distracting part of the 1st image and will try to fix that when I can get back to the RAW photo. I think there is a very large variety of sunbirds and now, knowing about them would target them as something to find and photograph.

Thanks Randy...sometimes it just works out with the right perch and a cooperative bird.

Appreciate the comments my friend. I am in 100% agreement with you on the first...and will work on it. I processed these about 3 years ago and wasn't as "focused" on such things back then...thanks god for RAW files...back I will go
