Malachite Sunbird

The last few days there has been a beautiful malachite sunbird hanging around Matukeng.  This is the mating season, and the males are really flashy.
It is drinking nectar from the aloe flowers.
This picture is blurry, but you can see the long, curved bill.
If you click the pictures, they will enlarge.
