A respite from the demands of life comes to me in an iridescent flutter, cheeping and fleeting in the garden. There is no end to my enjoyment of the sunbirds so forgiving of my presence whatever the time of day. First is the Southern Double-collared Sunbird (Cinnyris chalybeus) and second, the Malachite Sunbird (Nectarinia famosa). To say that I adore them is to express nothing of my love for these creatures!
