Looks like a Common Tailorbird to me. Nice shot of a very fast moving bird. :thumbsup:

Hi,

Thanks for comments, airforce1 and mphil.

I had to follow this little bird for some time while it flew around from tree to tree, and even when it did come out into the open, it took off again so quickly that I didn't even have the chance to raise my camera. But just as I was about to give up and go someplace else, it came out again and landed just a few feet away from me. It remained at the same spot for a while and at one point, even cocked it's head to look in my direction. Without waiting any furthur, I quickly took aim and fired about 12-15 shots at one go. Fortunately for me, my lens managed to get the focus correct the first time :sweat:

Here is a pic showing that brief moment in time :
