Photographer's Note

Spring is the best time to see those tiny birds again, than return to my "old" theme of birds pictures.
This morning I had excellent opportunity to spot one member of same birds marvelous family hovering and flying around in one of our town garden's.

*** The info. taken from the "Israel birding site":
Cinnyris osea is a sub-specie of the "honeybird" / "Tzofit" in Hebrew, very common bird through spring and summer in Israel.
This is probably a males, which are shining black with green and purple tones. This tiny bird weigh 8 – 10 grams and it is a swift flyer.

Cropped pic. from all sides, a RAW, F5.6, 1/320 sec., ISO 160, focal length 135mm.
