It was after good 6 months that I got some time off from my hectic office schedule & decided to do some birding. Got a shot of this purple Sunbird in the harsh afternoon light.

Hello Satirtha,
You are quite right about the lighting being harsh, but you have done a great job keeping the bird perfectly exposed. Looks like a young bird since you can clearly see some of it's feathers are still developing just under it's chin. The iridescent purple colors are just starting to show on it's wings, breast and tail. Focus is sharp and I like the overall composition.
I'm curious as to what the tiny orangish thing is on it's upper breast? Looks like something is stuck to it's breast feathers, perhaps a bit of plant material?

Bonjour Satirtha,
Agréable publication valorisant relativement bien le sujet dans une lumière difficile à maitriser.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Satirtha,
Fine bird-picture, well composed and presented with good sharpness. You managed well the harsh light.
