[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The blue-bearded bee-eater (Nyctyornis athertoni) is a species of bee-eater found in much of the Indian subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia. This bee-eater is found in forest clearings. It is found mainly in the Malayan region but extends west into peninsular India. The blue feathers of its throat are elongated and often fluffed giving it its name. They have a loud call but are not as gregarious or active as the smaller bee-eaters, and their square ended tail lacks the typical "wires" made up of the shafts of the longer central tail feathers in many species.

Hi Biswrup,a magnificent member of the bee-eater family,nice pose and excellent quality too despite the distance,well done! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Biswarup,
Nice colorful bird. Excellent details and composition.

My first viewing of this Bee Eater, Biswarup. I guess it is the first appearance of this bird on TN.
Good shot, though the presentation is not as per the thumb rules. Maybe you shot the subject as it is within the frame and did not have scope for cropping.

Hello Biswarup,
Nice photo of this special bee-eater. Good sharpness and a pose with a good seen blue beard. But the right side of the photo is totally empty. You can cut the right side and make a vertical composition.

Bolechilam na, j besi blur korle same color hallow hoye jae. Ekhane Tai. Darun bird, no doubt. ঘচাৎ করে গাছের ডালটাকে blur kore out kore dile kano! Just use clone tool if you don't want it. Vertical frame could have been better choice.
