A Sunbird enjoying the early morning sun, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

Midweek again, enjoy.


Caught this Mousebird sitting on a bush with its long tail clearly displayed.

A moment later it took off, but I did manage to catch the speedster in flight albeit that some focus was lost.

Photos taken at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Enjoy a super day.

A small section of the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is known as the silent forest which contains a trail specially designed to accommodate people with impaired or no vision. Here there is a minimum amount of talking, rather to enjoy the sounds of nature. The trail is marked with a rope and marked with signs with braille on one side explaining the significance of the particular spot.

Enjoy a great start to the new week.

As we called it day the two Dusky Flycatchers and gave a chance to shoot a few pics as a  departing gesture.

With the new year one week old we are enjoying the first weekend.

Hardly birds to see thanks to the wind, but the group was great.

At least we did see the Cape Sugarbird.

Some decided to graze in line turning their backs on the public.
