This is a male Purple Sunbird. I didn't expect it to be perching so close (approx 7-8m) to me. I saw it by chance and could take two photographs before, it decided to fly off.

May be next time I could take a better close-up, if I visited this place again in June 2012.

I dedicate this image to Ashley, Dina and Chinh :-)

Thanks for your visit, comments and votes :-)
