This is the first time that I was able to capture  a  male Purple–Naped Sunbird   with the purple colouration actually visible!

When he gets excited he raises the feathers above the nape exposing more of the brilliant purple feathers.

  3. That Marcaranga tree really attracts, I better check whether mine in Perdik is fruiting or not!
