[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
They get very tame and are very prolific in my garden next to the Vaaldam.
The Cape robin-chat is 16–17 cm long. The adult’s upper-parts are grey, and the face sides in front of and behind the eye are blackish, separated from the crown by a white supercilium. The chin, throat, central breast, rump, under-tail coverts and outer tail feathers are orange, and the central tail feathers are greyish-brown. The belly is pale grey.

The black bill is short and straight, with a slightly down-curved upper mandible. The legs and feet are pinkish grey, and the eye is brown. The sexes are similar, but the juvenile is dark brown above and buff below, heavily marked with buff on the upper parts and grey-brown on the breast.

Hello Deon,
Nice to see you back after such a long time.
Great photo of this wet Cape Robin. Superb sharpness, details and it stands in beautiful light. Excellent saturated colours. Taken from a very good low POV.

Hi Deon,
Welcome back first of all, we all hope you'll have the time and energy to be more active again. Beautiful, clear capture with razor sharp details and pleasant composition. I love your white balance and color saturation also. Top class shot. Bravo!
Best regards, László
