[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Bee eater was taken during the same trek as to Mysore where the photo from my previous post was shot. A lake on the banks of river Cauvery, swarming with Bee Eaters and White breastes Kingfisher(Saw a solitary one!). The river bed being cavernous and ideal for the Bee Eaters to roost. Had to put up make shift hides and sit under the hot searing sun. Worth the effort as it was a veritable Ballet of green fluttering wings.

Hello Kiran,
Green on green. Very beautiful photo in good sharpness. It's a bit sombre of colour. So I made a workshop to get some more light in it. I hope you don't mind.
Great POV, timing and composition.
