Another beautiful bird and you have captured a fine action moment. Fantastic colours and details on its plumage and that eye looks so expressive. The BG looks so natural here and the lighting is perfect. Wonderful POV and composition. Kudos.

Sir, Not at all. This is superb shot with lovely view. I like way it is holding the bee on its beak. Superb eye catch. The bird is really hungry. Rgds Ganesh
