It was just a short moment and then this Spiderhunter takes off right away; but the best thing is, it makes this shrilling, loud and high pitch before it comes so you know its there. It checks the banana flower for something special and then moves on. If you have the patience to wait, it will surely come back later and you just have to be ready all the time. It is such a beautiful bird and very unique to its purpose. If you have noticed, there is a ring on the left leg of this Spiderhunter, we suspect this must be a tag for research. Anyway, it is still in the wild so I was glad taking photographs of this.
