A female Crimson Sunbird and a Little Spiderhunter

Eastern Crimson Sunbird (Aethopyga siparaja)

Eastern Crimson Sunbird - female
in delightful mood
 Most fortunate today to come across the female Eastern Crimson Sunbird.  It was seen flirting around with the male among the branches.  Suddenly it perched above me.  I swung my camera and got the female in happy mode.  Slightly later I waited patiently for the Little Spiderhunter at the yellow ixora bush.  It too was in a delightful mood.  It enjoyed taking the nectar from the ixora flowers.  The moment she saw me in clear sight she made one last call and off she went.

Little Spiderhunnter (Arachnochera longirostra)
