No wonder it's got so long beak :) Nice bird!
Yes Dewberry that long curved beak comes in very handy when sipping nectar from flowers.
I love his little toes curled around the thin branch. Great shot.
He's certainly hanging on! Thanks Diane.
Lovely shot Bernie, I bet it sings lovely too :-)
Yes Helene, you're absolutely right there. They have a beautiful song.Here's a link to my YouTube video of the male Sunbird song if you want to hear it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8Rx1NAhB-c&feature=share&list=UUAHydZVhPB4HX90rvSqtCaQJust copy and paste.
Lovely, and such a mix of different kind of phrases and thrills!
Lovely looking bird & some nice looking flowers as well!
