WOW! What a beautiful subject Hayath! You did a fantastic job capturing the bird. The bird species in your neck of the woods never seize to amaze. :) And thanks for the extra info on the tree. Very interesting. Post more!

Amazing shot!bw! Enough said!
I tried to capture this beautiful bird and find that I couldn't get close enough.
Did you use a blind?

Thank you everyone again :)
Have a couple of others, will post very soon.

No hide was used, just the old "wait and stand still for a long time till the birds take you as part of the environment" :) (this was a pretty large crop shot)

Hayath, now that's an eye ring that even I couldn't miss!
What a fascinating looking bird captured so well it's amazing. I love the yellow and white combination exhibited by this guy. Are they drinking nectar from the Flame of the Forest or foraging on flowers/fruit from that tree?

Gracias Dave, Steve, Mike and Diamond Lil :)

Steve,
It was a bith of both, they'd go around sipping nectar as well as picking off smaller buds.
The rose ringed parakeets were enjoying their "meal" on these flowers too!

Cheers,


Hayath
