[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The purple sunbird (Cinnyris asiaticus) is a small sunbird. Like other sunbirds they feed mainly on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. They have a fast and direct flight and can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird but often perch at the base of flowers. The males appear all black except in some lighting when the purple iridescence becomes visible. Females are olive above and yellowish below.

Hello Pierre,

It's not a good idea to post well photograph if we get more comment just posting a picture which is not technically correct (smile). Just comparing your previous picture with this well taken photograph.

Best wishes,

hallo Pierre

Hi Pierre,
Missed this beauty while I was on holiday.
Excellent action photo of this Purple Sunbird in good sharpness and beautiful natural colours. Attractive DOF and composition.
