speckled mouse bird - Colius striatus.
Common resident. flocks frequent dense bush, scrub, forest fringes and suburbia in moist areas.
caught this at witpoorjie botanical garden. these birds are so shy they fly away the instant you approach them.

Hi Paul,
Beautiful composition! Contrast, colors and DOF are very well. It's a pity that the bird is partly hidden by the plant in the foreground, but indeed that has being difficult to capture best. Good work.
TFS, cordially,
