Red Bishop cock – Euplectes orix – 5" 12,5cm

Cape Town, South Africa

My interest in the field of photography began in childhood, starting with film, then a ‘splatter’ of videography and finally the migration to DSLR photography.

I hope you enjoy viewing my interpretation of the Natural World through my lens.

    Textbook perfect my friend, the composition is lovely !! We have just had a great discussion on this bird and we agree with you on the Euplectes Orix but then we looked up the commen name and it just says Southern Red Bishop Reference book is _Robberts Bird Guide

  • Thanks very much Sandra, isn’t enough that Pretoria has changed names, now you want to change my bishop too? LOL!!!
