A Photoshoot session - Spiderhunter at Sexy Pink
Little Spiderhunter at the Heliconia 'Sexy Pink' Location : Heliconia point, Heliconia Valley, Zone C
One of the most rewarding birding look-out point at the park is the Heliconia point. At most times of the day the place is visited by many small birds like the Little Spiderhunter, Brown-throated Sunbird and the Eastern Crimson Sunbird due to the presence of many varieties of heliconia plants and yellow ixora shrub there. Today the Little Spiderhunter was seen in a happy mood getting her job done. It was busy getting deep into the bottom of the flower base to have a sip of the nectar. The pendulous flower stalk is red and the pink bracts that cover the real flower are sometimes called 'false flowers'.
