Thanks for sharing Anil,
They are abundant around my home here in Dubai, I’m planning on spraying some homemade nectar on the flowers in the hope to attract them to a particular spot, this way I should (hopefully) get some great shots, watch this space!!! :P

Next on the hit list -  2xTCIII + 2x 430 EX-II

Why dont you try the Hanging Nectar Feeder like a Lamp which has flowers at the Bottom.

Check this Youtube Link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXni_9UfJys

All the Best :)

Well these are from Kerala, India , Pics taken from the small garden of my Villa. These birds are easy to be shot by a camera soon after rains or early in the Morning between 6.00 am and 7.00 am only.

i have been looking for a hummingbird nectar feeder for these birds, but not available in india all from US only.
the Postage is 40$ for a 20 $ feeder so i am wondering how to build one feeder home made locally.

Thanks for Viewing .
