|FACTS ABOUT BEE EATER:|
Before eating its meal, a bee-eater removes the stinger by repeatedly hitting and rubbing the insect on a hard surface. During this process, pressure is applied to the insect thereby extracting most of the venom. Notably, the birds only catch its prey that are flying and ignore flying insects once they land

Hello Sudeshna, beautiful birds indeed!
In my opinion you could have used a longer exposure time since the birds are stationary, or a higher ISO setting if your focal length required the short exposure. Getting more light into the camera would have been better in order to get those great colors shine. The photo, as it is now, is too dark. I'm posting a quick workshop as an example of what can be done in post production to make the picture a bit better. Have a nice day!
Nice capture of two bee-easters standing in almost the same pose with a good composition. Thanks for sharing and regards!
