Met one more colourful neighbour this morning :)

I thought it was amazing enough that we had a Purple Sunbird couple living in our neighborhood.

And then this morning I met this one, near a pomegranate bush.

I wish I knew what this bird is called…

Edited to add: It’s called Purple Rumped Sunbird, thanks Trupz!

Lunch time.

Where’s the mother?

This look broke my heart :(


Still closer…

How could you take so long?

This little one even looks angry :)

And still, could anything be softer?
