Cape White-eye (Zosterops virens): The Most Shy Friend of Them All

This little bird, not much bigger than a couple of centimetres (around 10 cm) has proven to be the most difficult friend to shoot photographs of. I have tried to take pictures for months even maybe years now. But they have escaped me every single time. The problem is that they fly so quickly from tree to tree and only stay in my garden for maybe 5-10 minutes. I have never successfully taken photographs of them until now! Even though some are not the best quality, I managed to get two good shots. Please enjoy the beauty of South Africa!
