I felt like doing  bit of editing this evening, and decided to work on some bird photos that wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to take flight.

Ostriches are one thing that are not plentiful on Londolozi. We came across this one while driving in for our stay. The sunlight on her backside is not an obvious lighting choice (but hey, work with what you get, right?). I do like the way it show the detail on the feathers. May, 2015

An orange breasted sunbird resting in the shade of one of the lovely flowering bushes at the Cape Town Botanical Gardens. April, 2015

Another red winged starling, this time at the Cape of Good Hope. April, 2015

One of the incredibly tame red winged starlings at the top of Table Mountain. South Africa, April 2015
A robin chat tucked deep in the bushes. I resorted to laying down on my tummy and shooting through the deck railing posts to get some shots. This was the best that I could managed. South Africa, April 2015
