Not my greatest shot but this pic of a Southern Double-collared Sunbird Cinnyris chalbeus was taken on the grounds of Kurisa Moya during our expedition to see the Cape Parrots in Magoebaskloof. It was back in 2009, before I got my Canon 60D.
This is what they are supposed to look like!
The Southern Double-collared Sunbird is usually seen singly or in small groups. Its flight is fast and direct on short wings. It lives mainly on nectar from flowers, but takes some fruit, and, especially when feeding young, insects and spiders. It can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird, but usually perches to feed most of the time.
They are widespread over South Africa and thankfully not endangered.
They do enjoy the birdbaths that many people put out in their backyards!
