Here is another subbird feeding. I had to set my ISO really high because it was moving pretty fast, however, the head is still not sharp because it was feeding as I took this shot.

Love the colors and the fact that the main object is upside down.

Clever shot. Great colors. This must be difficult. Thanks and keep up the great efforts. Nichole

Bonjour Liezel
Très belle prise de vue .la composition est réussie et les couleurs sont belles c'est super d'avoir pu prendre cet oiseau mouche en pleine action
Bienvenu sur le site et Bravo...JP


Liked the position of this bird and the composition. Posted a work shop , have a look at it


Hello Liezel,
Running late, but well deserved :-)
Thank you!

These are beautiful birds to watch and they are hard to photograph given their fast movements. I believe you have nicely captured a Variable Sunbird (Cinnyris venustus formerly Nectarinia venusta). Great timing and composition!

I think I caught one also, in Kabgayi here.
