[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Again one from the krugerarchive,this time a very small but colorfull bird,actually it is a rather big crop as the bird landed in a tree about 5 meters away when we where obseving the hippo's from the matambeni birdhide (a bigger and longer lense would be helpfull in this particular event,but I managed as well with the 300mm available)

Hello Paul,
A great capture of a male White-bellied Sunbird. Your POV and the bird's pose show the colours and features well with good sharpness, especially as you had to crop it a lot.
Nice one from your archives and TFS!
Best regards,
Ivan

Prachtige foto, Paul.
De zachte kleuren zijn van grote schoonheid. Uitstekende scherpte. Leuke houding, kijkend over de schouder in de camera. Erg mooie omgeving.
Groet,
Peter

Hello Paul,
What a lovely capture of this gorgeous little Sunbird that stands out so nicely against the grey background. Excellent focus, sharp details and wonderful colours of the plumage.
A very fine composition too!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Hi Paul,

Gorgeous bird, the intense blue of the plumage makes a beautiful color composition with the light colors of the leaves and the gray of the BG.Thanks for sharing!

Hi Paul,

I love these little Sunbirds and this is a wonderful capture. He is posed so nicely on the branch. Colors are beautiful. Excellent details of the face, eye, curved beak and plumage. The setting and composition are superb.
