Atewa, Ghana

There don't seem to be any photos of this attractive species in the gallery, so I thought I'd upload a few that I took the other day.

WOWSER Andrew... what a wonderful find for you!!!

A super picture to get - very well done laddie.

I wondered where you'd been hiding LOL - seems you've been sunning yourself.

Lucky you, I wish we had this bird in our woods. Beautiful closeup Andrew. Thanks for your help in putting a name with the bird that I put up. I found where I had taken a few photos of it back in Sept 2013. This is the first time that I have seen it since 2013. Have a nice week
