Another image from the southern Drakensberg, South Africa. I spent quite some time trying to get a sharp image of this Olive Thrush. I got a couple in the end. This particular one I like as it speaks of the nature of this bird - hopping here there and every where through the undergrowth. A kind of hide-and-seek.
