Pintailed Whydah...
So noisy, so bossy and yet oh so beautiful!
I do miss him - he's still around but I can't hear or see him like this and that's because he only appears this way during his breeding season, he returns to normal when his job is done!!!
I spent hours keeping a watchful eye in my garden waiting for the opportunity to snap this little guy! At one point he actually flew into the house defending his territory! It's been a real treat watching him work his way around the garden... yes he does tend to fight off all the other regulars but they'll always come back!
