One of the many sunbirds. The colours are just phenominal.
No interactions present.
Although hummers and sunbirds look so similar and have very similar habits and ecological niches, they are not closely realted. Hummers are African and Asian, hummers are American. Sunbirds are passerines, hummers are not.
As with all metallic colours, and some others, in birds, the colours are not part of the bird - they are produced by the micro surface structure of the feathers which refracts light.
Thanks for sharing that photo. What a beautiful bird!
Nice shot - not a bird I've seen for a while and it's good to recall the 'problem' of separating 'little coloured jobs' rather than 'little brown jobs'. It's certainly a variable sunbird; couldn't say for sure which race or subspecies,
