Enjoying the flowers

Enjoying the flowers
When I posted a macro of some Wonga vine flowers a few days ago, Tacheles asked if there are any long billed birds to eat the nectar. It so happens there are, the birds are called Eastern Spinebills and I found I had some images of one taken a few years ago and not previously posted. Other photos are in the PiPs.

Gudrun, Serge Schmitt, Nouchetdu38, Ecobird and 31 other people have particularly liked this photo

A beautiful image George and what an attractive little bird. Lovely colours - I don't think I have ever seen a small bird with red eyes before. A terrific series .
