Primary colour tapestry: Sunbirds on Sutherlandia

Spectacular stands of Cancerbush (Lessertia frutescens) have been brightening the valleys for the last couple of months. The stands are a magnet for the local nectarivore population, hungry now that the proteas have finished their flowering season. Here are some highlights of birds on red (the yellow background continues courtesy of the Othonna parviflora):
