Nice to see this beautiful Sunbird from your recent trip.They are very fast and difficult to capture. Once I captured a flying one in KNP.
Excellent color and details.
Thanks for showing,

Ciao Ron, great capture of lovely bird in bice pose, fantastic metallic colors, spendid sharpness and fine details, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
A beautiful specimen, expertly captured. Well done!, Ron!
These are quite common here. Every speech we have at least one pair nest in our garden.
The plant is a Lantana [Verbenaceae}, which is not active to Israel.
Are you still in IsraeL? Hope you have had a good visit.

Ron, this is a fabulous picture of a Sunbird you captured in Israel during your recent trip. This looks familiar to us orientals -- the Sunbird and the lantana bush it is perched on. I wonder if you have lantana in the US.
Looking forward to seeing more pics from your trip.

Hello there Mr. Ron,
This is quite an exceptional close up shot, the details are wonderful. The metallic blue colors of the bird seems like an armor like a black knight in a bird form, beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
