Hi all,

This is another picture of the Blue Tailed Bee Eater taken around Bangalore. They are very colorful in this season. The colors are enhanced by early morning (7 am) golden light.

A beautifully formed specimen captured expertly from a low vantage point with good exposure and sharp focus Murali, its rich early morning colours show very well against the neutral brownish BG. TFS this my friend.

Another beauty from the bangalore group. I just saw Goutham's shot and next one is yours. Superb glow on the eyes. Fantastic work. WoW how was it watching their eyes behind the lens. Ganesh
