A Spider Hunter in the Western Ghats

The spider hunter belongs to the family of sunbirds. They are characterized by long strongly curved bills. This particular fella was very busy collecting nectar, and I had a good timing chasing him as he moved from one flower to another. Notice how small he is, compared to the flower. Shot with a 100-400L and 1D Mark 3 lens near Puttur.
