Little Spiderhunter Again

Little Spiderhunter.
Canon EOS 7D EF 800mm IS
ISO 2500 F5.6 1/160 Without Flash

October 18 2010. Yesterday I went back to the same location where I got the Little Spiderhunter last week.   Upon setting up my gears, the Little Spiderhunter came and stopped by at a banana flower. It perched at the top of the banana flower and used its long bill to suck on the nectar. Due to poor light source, I had to use ISO 2000 to 2500 on my Canon EOS 7D to get a reasonable fast shutter speed to avoid motion blur. I am very surprised with the outcome of the photos. They were not as noisy as what I had expected. 
Sweet, sweet nectar

Thanks for viewing.

The long beak is a fantastic photo, the Little Spiderhunter is looking for spiders. It's a great header.

I think it will be there a few times a day.
