Beautiful shots Garg ji, thanks for sharing.
 
By seeing these photos i remember my pollination biology study on this species during which i observed some other birds like Bulbul, Sunbirds also feeding on the nectar (right now i dont have the photos with me). I learnt from the birds that the dull looking bluish flowers are the fresh ones (with good amount of nectar) and the bright red ones are old flowers without any nectar. Till then i was thinking the otherway. Even in your pictures the bird is taking honey only from the bluish flowers.
