Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, Cape Town

Male red breasted sunbird on a pincushion
The pincushion is a Leucospermum conocarpodendron,, a Proteacea,, the plants that I so much wanted to see!
The birds were nectaring just hummingbirds do in the Americas.

Later, on Table Mountain, we saw them feeding on insects, see a female below.
