Photoshoot session with the Orange-bellied Flowerpecker

Devouring the rotting and over-ripe Jackfruit
Location : Zone C

Dark steel-blue  head and face
 It is interesting to note the habit of the Orange-bellied Flowerpecker when it comes to visit the over-ripe Jackfruit.  It appears that every time the Jackfruit bears many an over-ripe fruit, this flowerpecker will instinctively come to enjoy the fruit.  This provided another golden opportunity for me to have a photoshoot session with this seldom seen jewel of the forest.  It is one of the most colourful tiny birds of the park.  Today it is the male of the species that got into frame.  Here are the shots.... 

Back to rump is bright orange (partly seen above)

The chin and throat is dark grey, whilst the rest of the underparts are orange
