First time encounter with the tiny Scarlet-backed Flowerpecker

Scarlet-backed Flowerpecker (Dicaeum cruentatum )
Location : Botanic Island Two

Sepah Puteri Merah (Malay) - Scarlet-backed Flowerpecker
It is a tiny bird and is the first time I come across it at the park.  It was accompanied by its female counterpart but I couldn't get a good picture of it.  The female of the species has more olive-green upperparts.  What is attractive about this bird is the scarlet forehead, crown and continues to the rump.  The rest of the body is a beautiful dark blue colour.  It moved quickly among the branches and if not by a stroke of good luck I wouldn't be able to get a glimpse of the bird for record purpose.
