Photographer's Note

My second catch of the same bird, this time from my front balcony, heard its twit and swiftly taken this picture.
A specie of the hummingbird, it's scientific name: Cinnyris Osea, and in Hebrew also known as a "Honey-bird" or "Tzofit".
This tiny bird, 10-12 cm most length, wight of 8 gr., wingspan 12-14 cm, special shaped beak as a funnel, used to suck flower's-nectar.
It is a swift, fast and restless bird, though with a marvelous twit I hear every morning in summer's.

Cropped sides for a better composition.
