The Bottle brush tree (callistemon viminalis) & the sunbird

The beautiful bottle brush tree (callistemon viminalis) was in full bloom in Lalbagh last month. And as a special treat we were lucky enough to see many little sunbirds (the purple rumped kind i was told, though all i saw was its yellow underside) flitting all around. Quite a sight!

The name is so apt. Takes me back to when the kids were small and their milk bottles!
