A sunbird's perfect mould

Chinese hat plant
 There is a certain perfection between the Eastern Crimson Sunbird and the Chinese hat plant.  Recently I discover that the sunbird is regularly visiting the Chinese hat plant bush.  There are other attractions at the location viz a healthy growing shrub of the yellow ixora and plenty of other heliconia varieties.  Seems like  there's a lot of visiting schedules for the sunbird at this location.  When sipping at the nectar of the Chinese hat plant flower, the sunbird's beak makes a perfect mould with the flower.  More pictures below..
