Artist's Description

These very small indigenous birds (near-endemic to South-Africa, occurring across much of the country, excluding the Kalahari Desert and extending into south-eastern Botswana) commonly occur in gardens, especially when fruit trees are bearing. They are hyperactive and not generous with photographers but offer more opportunities while eating the fruit. Their name derives from the white fringes around the eyes that make them look like they are wearing glasses.Info
I took this photo last year. Today I was so lucky to see two of them in my front garden, drinking water. (Bronkhorstspruit, Gauteng, South Africa)
