Artist's statement and description:While hiking up Slangkop above Kommetjie, a Southern double-collared sunbird flew past and settled briefly on a Tritoniopsis triticea. On reaching the top, I was dazzled by the sight of many T. triticea in full bloom as sunbirds flitted about, only pausing to drink nectar. I couldn't resist the challenge of painting these floral and winged jewels in their habitat.

Special thanks to Ross Turner for Cinnyris chalybeus photo references.
