|Male red breasted sunbird on a pincushion|
The pincushion is a Leucospermum conocarpodendron, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leucospermum_conocarpodendron, a Proteacea, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leucospermum, 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.
