[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am posting this bird's pictures rather frequently these days because it is being seen frequently here during the mating season.

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 Ram,
Beautiful photo of this sunbird. Fine sharpness with the focus on the eye and beautiful colors. Good DOF.
I use this lens for a couple of years now and I'm very satisfied.
Regards,
Peter
