The Little Spiderhunter

 It was another joyful moment to capture the Little Spiderhunter this afternoon.  The yellow Ixora flowers were in full bloom and that must have attracted the bird to the heavy flowering bush at the park. Watching it at a distance of about 20 feet I was able to photoshoot it while it was hovering in flight to obtain the nectar with its long black bill.  On closer look I love the distinctive soft yellow colour of its belly.
