    Default Adaptability: Bird Beaks

    Loten's Sunbird (Nectarinia lotenia), photographed in Coorg. Note how the beak is perfectly suited to the task at hand. The bit at the end of the beak is the tongue.

    Nice behaviour records, especially the second image.
    I suggest you put these in the birds section...

    Lovely behaviour captured. Amazing colours and sharpness. Looks as if the bird is infront of me . Great photograph.

    Cheers,

    amazing images Apana, I am a Fan for life ...!!!! Somehow I always seem to miss that "perfect timing" when taking bird pictures....i guess it is about anticipation and that split second that you get that makes the difference.
    could you post the exif as well ??? Are these handheld or on a Tripod/ Beanbag ?????

    Hi Dipankar,

    I'm flattered. These were on a flowering hedge at my mother's garden in Coorg. I stood in a car shed next to the hedge and photographed these birds. I used a Gitzo and Wimberley head. This was with the 500mm lens on Aperture Priority, ISO 400, f4 at 1/320. Due to the dull conditions I could not capture them jumping from flower to flower but intend to do that as soon as the weather clears.
