Visit to Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden

During May 2019 I had an opportunity for testing the Canon EOS R mirrorless body. For one of my outings I paired the Canon EOS R with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens for a trip to Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden close to Cape Town.

It was a bit late in the morning with the summer sun pounding down on Cape Town. Nevertheless, I was quite pleased with some of the images captured. I've captured a lonesome, but busy Southern Double Collared Sunbird and fauna and flora.
