Ruici Ong sent in images of the Olive-backed Sunbird (Cinnyris jugularis) taken at the Singapore Botanic Gardens on 13th March 2011 with the following note:
“While sheltering from the rain at the Singapore Botanical Gardens, I managed to catch sight of a male Olive-Backed Sunbird enjoying the light shower. As he fluffed and preened, I was quite delighted to see that his bright orange lapels were showing.
“I have read about and seen photos of male olive-backs displaying to the ladies, but have never seen these orange tufts in person! It was a pleasant surprise, and I’m glad that I managed to document the experience.”
