Up-close and personal with the Little Spiderhunter

Little Spiderhunter (Arachnothera longirostra ) - Kelicap Jantung (Malay)
Location : Zone C

 The Little Spiderhunter's favourite haunt at the park is the Ixora coccinea yellow shrub that flowers every day in the year.  Today it was more at ease and confident enough to give me a rare chance to shoot it at a very close range, that is about 2 meters away.  It saw me but because it was so very absorbed in sipping the nectar from the ixora flowers that it just gave more poses for the camera.  Let the photos speak for themselves.....
