I did this last week while I was still 'alive'. At the moment I'm half dead with the dreaded winter 'flu! Serves me right for always opening my mouth and saying 'I never get sick!!' Cough, cough, splutter, splutter, not fun. Must get better by tomorrow as there's a really Important Rugby Game on!
But back to birds. This is a Swallow Tailed Bee Eater which is indigenous to my part of the world, although you don't see them in the Cape. Another of John Kennekam's beautiful photos - thank you John, I loved the colours and the 'evil eye' the bird gives you.
