What a proud looking female, looks like celebrating her day, beautiful capture. tfs.

Ciao Samiran. Intrigant frame of flowers. Godo details for the bird against the soft BG.


Hello Samiran Bhai,
Hope you are doing fine. This is indeed a very beautiful shot of the female purple sunbird and I am glad you have posted her photo here as most of the photographers justifiably go for the gaudy coloured male. This is an exceptional shot and the female looks as lovely as the colourful male. The focus, sharpness, colours are majestic. Thanks a lot for sharing a spring laden photo....take care....warmest regards/Abid

Hello Samiran,

A Fantastic capture with excellent sharpness and detail my friend. Excellent eye contact, colours and POV. Her pose reminds me of someone I know, ever so much on the alert and nosy!! Well done my friend.

Hi Samiran,

The branches are helping to frame the bird. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Purple Sunbird. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
