Loten's Sunbird

The upper photograph is a female Loten's Sunbird while the lower one is the male. I had posted the sunbirds a few posts earlier, but this is the closest that I have come so far.As you can see in the first photograph the bird usually feeds on nectar, but may also occasionally feast on insects.
The male bird in the second photograph is actually sitting on the rear view mirror of a vehicle and was a few moments earlier trying to peck its own reflection on the mirror.
