We have quit a number of different birds that visit the garden. To capture them on camera is almost an alien story more suited for science fiction. We have even hung a ¨nectar bottle¨ in a tree hoping to get more of them a bit more passive instead of taking off at the first sign of human activity. Oh, I must mention that the Hadedahs are a cheeky exception to the rule. Yesterday I had the luck of a lotto winner with the Cape White-eyes feathery friends. The following pics were taken from less than six meters from the nectar feeding bottle in a tree. Patience paid.
Checking out if it is safe
Having my drink of nectar
Ah, my thirst is quenched
And then it was gone in a flash!
For the photographic technically minded these pics were taken with a Nikon D3000 and the Nikkor 55-200mm telephoto lens…
