Leptocoma minima


This was my first sighting of a Crimson-backed Sunbird (Scientific name: Leptocoma minima). Also called Small Sunbird, it is a sunbird endemic to the Western Ghats of India. I found this one quite by chance while I stopped to capture the yellow flowers by the wayside. Clicked at Wayanad in Dec/2013.
