Almost every house I encountered had a flower garden mostly in front, many with rose plants featured in these gardens. Beautiful historical town it turned out to be, and I happened to have just the right company in my parents-in-law. Not even clutches could rain on my parade.

The aptly named Scarlet-Chested Sunbird, Chalcomitra senegalensis, is a strikingly colored Sunbird belonging to the bird family Nectariniidae. They feed mainly on arthropods and nectar, and can often be seen hovering around flowering plants or hawking prey aerially or plucking insects from the ground.
