    Olive-backed sunbird (Cinnyris jugularis) by alabang, on Flickr

    The olive-backed sunbird (Cinnyris jugularis), also known as the yellow-bellied sunbird, is a species of sunbird found from Southern Asia to Australia.
    Common names for this bird include "tamsi"[1] in the Philippines and "kelicap" in Malaysia.
    The sunbirds are a group of very small Old World passerine birds which feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. Their flight is fast and direct on their short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering, but usually perch to feed most of the time.

    2 days out of 3, it is perched about 20 feet (maybe less) from a bridge.

    Did you crop in post?

    Tip: put the AF point on the head of the bird. I notice the focus is more prominent on the rock.

    Also tag your photo and label it on flickr. So more people can see your wonderful images.

    Brown-breasted Kingfisher (Halcyon gularis) by alabang, on Flickr

    The Brown-breasted Kingfisher (Halcyon gularis) is a tree kingfisher found in the Philippines. This kingfisher is a resident over much of its range, although some populations may make short distance movements. It can often be found well away from water where it feeds on a wide range of prey that includes small reptiles, amphibians, crabs, small rodents and even birds. During the breeding season they call loudly in the mornings from prominent perches including the tops of buildings in urban areas or on wires.

    Upon the recommendation of a user I have desaturated my bird as it was generating blown highlights and false colors.

    The motion blur of the bird flipping the crustacean was caused by my 1/200 shutter speed. If given a chance to do it again I would increase it to 1/500.

    I posted the slightly out of focus image because I felt that the subject matter of the bird eating was stronger and conveyed a compelling story.
