Olive-backed sunbird (Cinnyris jugularis) (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

The olive-backed sunbird (Cinnyris jugularis), also known as the yellow-bellied sunbird, is a species of sunbird found from Southern Asia to Australia.
Common names for this bird include "tamsi"[1] in the Philippines and "kelicap" in Malaysia.
The sunbirds are a group of very small Old World passerine birds which feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. Their flight is fast and direct on their short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering, but usually perch to feed most of the time.

Brown-breasted Kingfisher (Halcyon gularis) (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

The Brown-breasted Kingfisher (Halcyon gularis) is a tree kingfisher found in the Philippines. This kingfisher is a resident over much of its range, although some populations may make short distance movements. It can often be found well away from water where it feeds on a wide range of prey that includes small reptiles, amphibians, crabs, small rodents and even birds. During the breeding season they call loudly in the mornings from prominent perches including the tops of buildings in urban areas or on wires.

Brown-breasted Kingfisher (Halcyon gularis) (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

Upon the recommendation of a user I have desaturated my bird as it was generating blown highlights and false colors on the blue feathers.

The motion blur of the bird flipping the crustacean was caused by my 1/200 shutter speed. If given a chance to do it again I would increase it to 1/500.

I posted the slightly out of focus image because I felt that the subject matter of the bird eating was stronger and conveyed a compelling story.

I have an 800, but it never occurred to me to shoot with it up in the skies. Surely you were shooting through some sort of window?
