Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in Cape Town is a world renowned botanical garden and one of the Big 6 attractions in Cape Town. It is also a bird photographers paradise.
At this time of year the Erica's are in full bloom and the abundance of Orange-breasted Sunbirds is staggering. These specialist Fynbos sunbirds feed on the nectar of many fynbos species, but in particular the nectar produced by erica's at this time of the year.
The erica gardens are currently alive with Orange-breasted sunbirds and if ever there was a good time to get some great images of them, feeding, and up close it is now.
A monopod or tripod will really help in getting sharp images. The birds are fairly used to people so you can photograph with anything from a 200mm upwards. It can be tricky getting clean backgrounds, but if you persevere and have the patience you can pick your spot and wait for a bird to start feeding.
