Orange-breasted Sunbird, Anthobaphes violacea, is the only member of the bird genus Anthobaphes although it is sometimes placed in the genus Nectarinia. This sunbird is endemic to the fynbos habitat of southwestern South Africa, but also occurs in parks and gardens.

I took this at Harold Porter National Botanical Garden. Betty’s Bay South Africa.
Suid Afrika.
Macky was Standing Next to me taking photo’s of the same Bird. Please look at his far superior photo.
