More !!! by DianiRalph

Although not rare, Brown Breasted Barbets are very shy birds that are quite difficult to photograph.
I was lucky enough to spot one flying into a hole in a tree trunk and decided to come back with my BIG lens and a tripod to see what I would get (if anything)
Initially I thought that the whole exercise was in vain, and after a couple of hours waiting was just starting to pack up when the parents flew in and started feeding their baby !!!
When I came back a few days later in the hopes of more photos or maybe even the chick starting to leave the nest, there was no more activity at all. I only hope that they all flew off happily and maybe come back to nest again.
