[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Indian Roller (Coracias benghalensis), formerly also called the Blue Jay is a member of the roller family of birds that is found tropical southern Asia from Iraq to Thailand. It is not migratory, but undertakes some seasonal movements. They are found in open grassland and light forest areas. It is known for the aerobatic displays of the male during the breeding season. Males and females are however not readily distinguishable. Several states in India have chosen it as their symbol.

Hello Vishal
Perfect capture with sharp details, vivid colors and clear Bg
Thanks for sharing

Hello Vishal,
Very beautiful picture and technically well done. Often when the beak is open, a slight blur might be the detectable. This isn't the case in your work.
