thanks for giving me an info of the bird species that i was interested with ...:)
they're cute and lively. i heard them chirping in our frontyard years past. actually this cutee birds are not common and cannot be found in all areas...(as ive observed)..somewhat they have flower preferences (as food source)and likely choosy on the locations (probably on higher altitudes)...and during their feeding time, they feed individually or by pair but they hover in different flowers.
sir romy, may i know where did you take this picture?please...... is it somewhere here in cebu or other provinces? coz i happen to observe a similar bird hovering occasionally and seasonally on a certain flowering plant species we have at home somewhere in the south of cebu. by this at least i may know that still this species exist in this area.....thank you.

The branch at the bottom and the looping flower stalk lead the eyes to the center of the frame, where the bunch of flowers and the bird are waiting in ambush. This capture of a perpetually moving tiny bird in a dream environment is easily among my Top 10 best bird pics in terms of technicals. If this white-eye is endemic, it can easily make my Top 5 ever.

Kung di kita kilala sasabihin ko gawa-gawa lang ito sa pamamagitan ng computer. Parang scripted at may production design. Iniisip ko tuloy nakakausap mo ang mga ibon. Beyond Prestige!

At first I saw a beauty competition. Then I saw a chain, the continuos provision, the co-dependency, the freshness,
the season, the color, the rainbow, the promise, the steadfast love.

"Thee will I cherish, Thee will honor. Ruler of all nature... Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands,
Robed in the blooming garb of spring; Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer, Who makes the woeful heart to sing."

It's almost close to the burning bush, Ka Romy. Your capture made my heart sing.

Because He loves us more.
