A fine action shot of a Coppersmith Barbet eating fruit.
This species is not easy to photograph you you managed a good POV, great timing, nice sharpness and good use of flash to provide fine colours.
I didn't realise flash would have much effect when using 600 mm lens.
Thanks and best regards,
I like the way you have shown the habitat in full, perhaps little bit of brightness could bring out more life to the image.

Excellent action captured well, the barbet picking the fig, just beautiful. However, the brightness is very less and you can work on that to make this better. tfs

A very colorful bird in a funny pose, Raja.
I really like his "whiskers".
Those figs look ripe and appetizing,
and your barbet is ready for a feast with his beak wide open.
Very nice composition of this scene,
with excellent details on the bird.
TFS. : )
