It poured with rain last evening on the journey from Suikerbosrand to Wakkerstroom. However, we awoke to a beautiful day in what must be one of the best areas for bird watching in Southern Africa. This is not the best photo of an adult male Malachite Sunbird in breeding plumage but my family like it so I have added it to the site.
