Not an Orange Breasted Mousebird. This is an Orange Breasted Sunbird.
Just some of the wildlife we spotted at Kirstenbosch this morning, which also included a mouse, and a snake.
The snake was a Cape Cobra, and I did get some very quick shots, but nothing great. It just wanted to get away from us, and did so by quickly disappearing into a hole.
You shouldn’t be afraid of South African snakes. This one could kill you with a single bite, but don’t want to hurt you. They don’t want to be anywhere near you.
Think of it as a mouse with fangs.
Tonight: Dad’s last night before he heads home. There are plans for a nice meal out.
