Photographer's Note

This is a Malachite Sunbird (female) feeding on the nectar of a Protea flower. The Protea is also the South African National flower and grows mainly in the mountains of the Western Cape region.These little birds are plentiful in this area and the male is a wonderful glossy green with a long tail. Will try to post one soon.
