Grootkolk Birds'bar is a long story since a gang of bees forced the tender to close the business ! (look at page 20 of this thread eos5d) :D

Lovely!

It looks like it had bit to much of alcohol, his head is soooo red :lol: :lol: :lol:

Beautiful little bird, the texture of the feathers is stunning, somewere I must have a closeup of these feathers I will have to start a search among the many, many pictures on my hard disks :doh:

Best regards,



Rob
