I have seen Purple-crested Turacos on hundreds of occasions and have always tried to take special photographs of them. They are such iconic African birds and are sought after subjects. Unfortunately they are shy characters and tend to avoid camera lenses. While birding a small conservancy in the Lower Mpushini area near Pietermaritzburg my luck with them was going to completely change. This exquisite pair flew out from thick cover and landed a few metres in front of me while I was searching for African Emerald Cuckoos in the canopy. The birds seemed way more interested in each other than me, which allowed for some unbelievable photographic moments. A dream encounter and an intimate moment shared with them!
