The neotropical trumpet creeper was full of purple sunbirds in this hotel garden in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan, site of Ranthambhore National Park. While the trumpet flowers presumably co-evolved with hummingbirds as pollinators, the sunbird goes for the nectar at the base of the flower.
Widely distributed across Asia from west to southeast. All over India. Often seen in parks and gardens.
