After a long time I got some time to post a picture here. I captured this bird in Shimala at Viceroy Lodge which has very big beautiful garden. It was evening time and we were about to leave, suddenly I spotted some of these at a fence. I didnt fine then so attractive, still i took some ohotos. Initially it was very diificult to focus on them as the surrounding was busy also their color was matching with that of soil. this one just flew and sat on one of the wires providing me some opportunities. I got two nice shots out of which I am posting one today. I cropped the picture a bit.I am totaly unaware of its species. Can somebody help?

Tomorrow is 60th anniversary of India's Independece Day. I would like to wish all my firnds happy independece day.

I will going to my home town for 5 days :D. I hope to see lots of greenary, butterflies and offcourse DRAGONFLIES. So wish me luck so that i would get sme good pictures :)
