Much to my pleasure I stumbled upon a lone Spiderhunter happily absorbed at siphoning the nectar from the flowers of the Yellow Ixora. The Spiderhunter had to do some acrobatic moves while in flight to pull out the needle-like style which contains the sweet -tasting nectar. For this reason Malays call this flower 'Bunga Jarum' whereby 'jarum' means needle.
