Photographing a tiny, quick moving Flowerpecker is always a challenge and this one is no exception. He was constantly flying from one branch to another which made waiting for a clean shot not good for your blood pressure! . This is a male Scarlet-Backed Flowerpecker (Dicaeum cruentatum) local name: Sepah Puteri Merah
Flowerpeckers love this hairy but succulent fruit
Ferrari always comes to mind whenever the word scarlet is mentioned . Well, they may not be loud and quick as the ‘prancing horse’ but to me they are in a category of their own in terms of beauty.
