We have this wild fig tree in our garden, which is a favourite for many a bird.
This bird is a regular there, it comes in from a Deodar not too far away every couple of hours, to feast on the ripe figs.
I do not know the name of this bird, but its one really beautiful bird.
I'm also adding another shot to the WS so you can help me identify it.
As I've mentioned earlier, this garden series is a dedication to my sister, Caroline.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Bro Goldy, a fine capture of a beauty from wonderful POV with neat details and excellent lit.
TFS and cheers,

Hi Goldy,

Looks like you had some difficult conditions to contend with shooting up into the canopy and into the back light, but you've handled it well. We have a Figg Tree Bird which looks a little similar but I not sure if this is the same.

Cheers Rick :)

Hello Goldy,
So you managed to take a shot of a Coppersmith Barbet that was calling in your garden!
These birds are not easy to photograph but enough of it is seen in this shot between the leaves of this fig tree to ID it.
well done and thanks,

Hello Goldy,
Excellent shot, sharp details on the bird and a beautiful composition.

Hi Goldy,

The branches and the fruits are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the bird. The surrounding light is enhancing the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.
