Crimson Sunbird, by Tareq Uddin Ahmed

This photo was taken at Kaptai National Park. After reaching there, I was extreme tired and was relaxing in the forest, then suddenly saw it. At first glance, I thought it was a butterfly, but zooming through my lens, what i found was a beautiful Crimson Sunbird, just about to collect honey.
