A male orange-breasted sunbird turns his belly to maximise exposure to the early morning warming rays of the sun in the Agulhas National Park. After sitting perched there for a brief while, he was off again on his charge-around, chasing off other male sunbirds that approached too close to the bush where his female was incubating eggs in a carefully concealed nest.
