Must be a Casanova among female birds, featuring those color shades...
Startling colors and wonderful timing. The contrasting colors are wonderful and the overall composition is well done. Thanks so much for sharing and congrats.
Its hard to believe what my eyes are seeing! What a lovely little bird adorned in his glossy, very colorful feathers,and with those pink to soft orange flowers adding to the the great picture, its just a wonderful shot. j.e.s..........
Palestine sunbirds are nectar feeders and may look like hummingbirds but they are not hummingbirds. They do not feed on the wing only perched. This is a male, the females are brownish, less ostentatious. They make lovely tear-dropped shaped woven nests.
@Janice H. Actually spring, but summer weather. Thanks
@Georgia Thomas Thank you! Wish you new camery and a lot of lucky moments! :)

@Miguel Belloso Bueno mil gracias Miguel! Saludo desde Polonia :)
@Jaka Brzin it's a Sunbird, so it's no hummingbird exactly, but yes, he is so similar.
