[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.

nice capture, TFS Ori

Good looking Sunbird.
Composition with flowers is very attractive.

wonderful little creature ... lovely colorful capture . P900 has reached it limitations at ISO800 ... never the less I like that shot !

Not a bad shot at all. Good describing. No eye on the bird. Maybe it could be isolated and lightened.
