Profile of a Cape Robin

Profile of a Cape Robin (Cossypha caffra). In our courtyard in Napier, Western Cape, South Africa.
NOTE: the specie name ‘caffra’ is derived from the Arabian word ‘kafir’ which is used as an indication for the lowest caste. In South Africa the word ‘kaffer’ was used during the ‘Apartheids’ years to indicate Africans. Officially the word is nowadays prohibited in the Rainbow Nation.

New FaceBook profile picture

Just uploaded our new FaceBook profile picture. Assembled of (self-)portraits I made yesterday evening and added two flower elements. Still needs improvement but for the moment it works.
