[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Crimson Sunbirds (Aethopyga siparaja) are tiny, only 11 cm long and resident breeder in tropical southern Asia from India to Indonesia and the Philippines. They have medium-length thin down-curved bills and brush-tipped tubular tongues, both adaptations to their nectar feeding. Flight is fast and direct on their short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird, but usually perch to feed most of the time.

Hello Joy,
What a splendid photo! The colours are brigth and amazing in contrast. The blurred background is wonderful too. Great sharpness, details and taken from a very good POV. Attractive composition.

Hello Joydeb,
I fully agree with Peter's critique above and, as an accomplished bird photographer, he would know. The colours are fantastic and so are the sharpness, POV, composition and exposure. What a beautiful image.

Oh JOYDEB this is AMAZING and my favorite today!!! Vibrant reds and awesome POV, just splendid!! and of course excellent detail and presentation

This bird has always eluded me, Joydeb. A few times when it appeared before me, I always lost it, thanks to the cumbersome auto-focus shenanigans the zoom lenses are prone to. The bird disappeared in the meanwhile!
You have, on the contrary, obtained a superb shot of it and that too on a drooping red flower that matches up with the colour of the bird and adds great visual appeal to the image as a whole.

Hello Joy,
What a gorgeous image!!!! This beautiful sunbird could not have picked a finer flower to perch on then this bright red bloom which compliments the birds breast wonderfully. A pleasure to view such a stunning photo.

Hi Joy
好久不見 近來好嗎
照的很清晰 很漂亮的鳥
色彩鮮豔無比 姿態更是巧立 連花都可以照這樣的清楚
真是沒有話說 真是太棒了
最困難的是主體清晰 旁邊的襯景卻很模糊

This another great picture from you.
Really a superb image in all the sense.
Light, sharpness and colour all are best quality.
