Sometimes words aren’t necessary – Nature can do the talking for itself.  These beautifully coloured birds were spotted in the Caprivi region of Namibia and in northern and central Botswana during the months of August/September 2012.  Enjoy Nature’s amazing palette presented by her feathered friends.  First off  a Violet-eared waxbill.
