Photoshooting the Crimson Sunbird

 The Crimson Sunbird is not easy to approach.  It would normally run for cover once it catches sight of you.  The male is very colourful with the head and neck is a metallic red sheen.  I managed to get a good photshoot session with it this morning while it was having fun time extracting nectar from the Chinese hat plant (Holmskiolda sanguinea).  The bird moves fast from branch to branch and makes it  more difficult to get a clear shot of it.
