Thanks very much Lisbeth.

You are so right. I could spend all day just watching the nectar feeder. \O \O

Super pics in flight.. \O

I had my first sunbird in my Kempton garden - a white bellied one, but my camera, which is normally set up, was packed away with the renovations.
It is setup now and I am waiting for it's return. lol
Thanks very much Amoli.

One thing I have learnt - take your camera with you wherever you go, even to the toilet. You never know what you might see.

Hope you get some great shots. \O \O

More action at the feeding nectar. The White-bellied Sunbird and Weaver fighting over landing rights at the feeder with the winner claiming his place at the feeder.
