Another day of sudden, pelting rain. While the greenery might be loving it, human beings in this corner on earth have been inconvenienced not a little by breakdowns in power supply for long periods, meaning really long since the back up systems too gave up.
Flipping through my albums, I came upon these pictures of the purple sunbird taken one bright morning in February. Arguably, my best pictures of these tiny, beautiful birds ...
This is the first time I noticed the golden spot just below the shoulders and that was because I scarcely ever saw it at repose. If not busy merrily chasing each other in crazy flight, they were almost always sighted peering into some flower or the other, hanging upside down and flitting continuously from here to there to everywhere
