Purple Sunbird Male
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|It is cloudy and rainy weather here in Jammu today. This morning, there was a slight pause in rain during which a male Purple Sunbird alighted on electric cables in front of my house terrace. I took a few shots in poor light and here is one of them.|
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 Mr. Thakur,
It's amazing how you manage to get so many shots in your school compound itself. Though the picture is a bit grainy, still the color has come out vividly. The slight turn of the head has also made the picture pretty attractive.
Very atractive picture my Friend.Perfect composition, wonderful saturated blue. As Satirtha said is grainy but thank You to share a pic of this wonderful neighbour.
Have a good day and thank You!
