The scarlet-backed flower pecker

I have been trying to get a decent picture of one of these cuties for a while. In the sun they look tatty, in the shade the red does not stand out, they are really teeny tiny and move quicker than someone with bad ADHD and 20 coffees in side them. THis one was shot in LNEC, Sai Kung.

Then Paul D. introduced me to a bottle brush tree that this chappy likes, and I managed to get some more pics just a couple of weeks ago...and more to come when I download my other files.
