Thank you Mari du Preez

to pamsai : it could be. or maybe because of variation between different geographical site. or maybe just light effect since I didn't use dslr, but only superzoom digital camera. sometimes my photos are quite different with the real colours if the light was too weak or too strong. i dont know for sure :D

if you notice, i think the black mark on the head is larger than the mark on your photos.

the colours are not as strong in the one you spotted, wonder if that one is female. This is another spotting I took that looks more like yours...
