[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
he 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 Biswarup,beautiful member of the bee-eater family,not common and taken in an excellent way,interesting post as usual. Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

This is yet another first rate capture with your compact camera, Biswarup.

Hello Biswarup,
Attractive species of bird. Blue beard is spot on. Quite well captured this beautiful bird. It's always a difficult task to capture bird in nature, mainly when they hide in bush. Here background looks good, don't need blur.
Thanks for showing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
