Garden visitor - Yellow-bellied Sunbird

If you look closely you can see the female sitting close to the hibiscus flower - sometimes this little bird is called the 'olive-backed sunbird'.

lovely bird, her beak is really long

She feeds on the nectar of flowers like the hibiscus so she needs a long beak.

Very pretty bird. Its a good shot! It's hard to capture winged creatures ... they take off before we can even whip out the camera ...
