[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. They can hover for short durations but usually perch to feed.
Males are brightly coloured but females are olive above and yellow to buff below.

Hello Samiran,
Your Purple-rumped Sunbird has posed perfectly for you, allowing us to view it's beautiful plumage and unique features. I love it's long curved bill and colorful redish eye. The bird is framed so nicely while surrounded by beautiful leaves and a pleasant blurred BG. Great shot!!
