[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 Biswarup,
Quite well captured this, Sunbird. Quite Well focus and details look good. Too much BLANK SPACE in its hind portion. Framing it bit tighter keep only that flower, could have been more eye catching.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
