    The Malachite Sunbird is probably my favourite bird of the trip. The greenish iridescent coat shimmers under the sunlight, such a dazzling bird. Saw it 3-4 times during the trip, but only got some open shots at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden.

    BG was not ideal and lose a bit of sharpness on the flight shot.

    Sheau Torng,

    I like this series, especially flight shot #3! No 2 would have been better if the eyes were a bit brighter (sorry to nit-pick :P ). But very nice series overall nevertheless :kudos thumbsup:

    Do share more from your trip (wildlife included)!
