This little Purple Rumped Sun Bird is a frequent visitor to my garden. He gets fooled by his reflection seen on my windows, the car mirror and on this occasion, on the glass panel of a box housing the electricity meter.
I captured him through my window as the little bird was totally engrossed in checking out the vision of his look-alike !
