[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Purple-rumped Sunbird (Leptocoma zeylonica) is a sunbird endemic to the Indian Subcontinent. Like other sunbirds, they are small in size, feeding mainly on nectar but sometimes take insects, particularly when feeding young. Males are brightly coloured but females are olive above and yellow to buff below.

White Chinese Rose enhances the beauty of this composition manifold, Joydeb. Only a Sunbird can twist itself into such position to get at what it is looking for. Adorable capture there.
