A fine capture of a female Brown-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes malacensis).
Though a little soft it is well seen among the red flowers and against the fine bokeh BG. The red eye is quite obvious and the composition and POV are excellent.
TFS this fine image,

There is a nice light in your photo and beautifull colors. Nice POV showing well the bird. Contrast with the blurry background looks fine.
Thank you for sharing,

Very good looking bird, Ganesan.
Despite the harsh sun, you have captured the bird in nice detail.
Though the leaves are a little over-exposed, the image as a whole has very good appeal.
TFS and all the best.

In spite of the strong light you got a very nice capture of this pretty Sunbird with good focus on the red eye and fine details. A pretty flower too and a fine background.
TFS and regards, Ulla

It's not easy to get a shot of a Sunbird out in the open like this. Beautiful little bird with lovely colors and nice details. I love the red/orange eye. Looks just wonderful on the pretty bush.

Hi Ganesh, lovely bird with fantastic colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio
very good attempt to capture this bird among the bright red flowers. too much of fiery red flowers, difficult to avoid though. did a workshop just to reduce the flowers in the frame. hope you don't mind. tfs.

This is a beautiful bird who is very special and unusual to me as we don't have similar specie here. You captured a nice image with good colors and exposure. I would have composed it a little less centered, like in the WS for example. Thanks,

a great shot of this unusual bird.
That beak looks perfect for sucking up nectar.
Sharp with good details.
