Description: A terrible picture I've had to lighten to the max taken into the light from deep forest. I anticipated the bird would visit the exposed flowers but the little devil evaded my trap. But interesting, because it shows even long-billed Sunbirds like this Olive cheat by piercing the flowers from the top-side of the tube: thus getting the nectar reward without paying the toll of a face-full of pollen.

Description: Do not think this is a true albino as there is some colour. Bought the nectar feeder specifically to be able to photograph this bird, which was around for a while. Associated with normal coloured male, suspect female, also suspect she bred as more (2/) similar birds were seen, but with more colour, yellow and brown visible.next observation!
