An exceptionally sharp picture despite your modest claim that it isn't, Goutham. We know how difficult it is to shoot the male of this species for various reasons including its ever restless movement.
You have captured a moment which is rather rare - a bird stretching one of its wings while preening. You were perfectly located to capture that movement in its best possible aspect. The camera values are just right to give you a sharp image with most desirable DOF.
That dash of amber colour at the base of the stretched wing is the beauty-spot of this highly artistic presentation.
I could go on and on . . .

You have captured the metallic colours in this Purple Sunbird beautifully. The natural sunlight in the image was a great aid to bring out the vivid colours to the ultimate best. I also like the opened wing that is seen with great clarity, and the fact that one can even see the bird's paw right through the open feathers. Indeed a pretty image. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

This is really a beauty....What I like most are the fantastic colors of the shinning feathers and the contrast against the background. As usual a perfect focus and WB. Another lovely image from a close range with excellent sharpness and fantastic focus.
