[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dont know the name of the bird. It was feeding on this tree which was right outside my window. It was very hard to capture as it moved very fast and was unpredictable. I have lost a little focus on the head which was moving towards the flower to get the nectar even though I set the ISO up to 400 ... oh well ...
