This is worth an aching back! Magnificent capture of the bee-eater. I love the simplicity of the comp. The colors and details are marvelous - he even has a catch in his beak. Wonderful pose and bg.

A nice catch.
You posted this picture before I could even reach home. This looks as good on the screen as it does on your D50 LCD.

Goutham, i don't understand that why the people called him as a bee eater! :-) Great species, superb bg with nice colours! i started to think about these wonderful coloured backgrounds show the environment of India. What a shot, even i can see the details of that bee.

Very lovely shot. Classic stance and creamy background - whatmore with a catch in it's beak together with the glow of the setting sun. Well worth the backache!!! One little nit pick - a tad too much USM for an otherwise perfect shot. Well done.

Hola Goutham.- Una fina y bella foto. Exelente detalle de su comida en el pico, y esos bellos colores del plumaje de este hermoso pajaro. Una muy buena pose con un fondo bastante agradable que aun siendo casi del mismo color no interfiere en la foto. Saludos Luis52.

Nice capture , Goutham . The colors are sharp , and the bee in his mouth is a great touch . Hope your back feels better , as I know how much fun that is . I photo out of my car from gravel roads , and twisting is sometimes necesary to get the shot . A back brace might be a good idea . TFS , Kevin .

cet oiseau est vraiment spectaculaire et le rendu de l'objectif tres bon!
je suis en train de comparer les objectif 70-300 et celui-ci semble etre le meilleur compromis.

This is what every photo should be! Perfect. Sharp, nice colours, DOF, POV, composition, etc. Maybe you got a picture from this bee-eater with his beautiful blue tail? I can't wait.

A classic bird shot worthy to be included in an illustrated book on best looking birds of the world, Goutham :-).
No gain without pain, they say, and it applies quite literally in this case after reading your introductory note.
Well done and TFS.
