Black Throated Sunbird

A Black Throated Sunbird.





























Always love this pose...staring you down.

































































Here is the female. The male is much larger and colorful than the female as with many other species, check out this  interesting reading on/about Sexual dimorphism (click).

They are so similar to the Fork-tailed Sunbirds we often see in Hong Kong. Beautiful!
