[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.

Hello Biswarup,
Much better on the focus, maybe not tac sharp, but still quite good. I love the iridescent bluish colors in its plumage. The bright yellow leaves contrast nicely with your subject. Good eye contact with just a hint of catchlight. A little noise in the BG, but this can easily be removed.

Belo contraste de cores e bela pose do pássaro!
