Oh Joydeb, what a spectacular shot and my favorite today!!!
It is a Happy New Year isn't it?!!!! Looking fwd to more of your spectacular presentations

Hallo Joydeb
I also wish you a happy and prosperous 2014.
This is a lovely bird as is the image of it. I love its beak that is shaped to get right into the flowers. A beautiful image especially with the beautiful Hibuscus flower to compliment it.
Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ciao Joydeb. Excellent DPF and Amazing playing of light fot thr bird in great pose. Happy New Year.


Namaste Joydeb,

This is not only a beautiful photo, but also a pure joy to look at. The hybiscus flower along would have made a beautiful image, the presence of the sunbird, adds another dimension to the composition and liveliness. The composition makes me think of Chinese brush painting. thank you.

Happy and healty 2014 to you. Namaste.

Missed this fine bird-picture.Love your chosen composition in a diagonal way, the beauty of this Sunbird is striking and the Hibiscus on which the bird is sitting a superb flower.
A perfect shot to begin the year with.
