[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a picture of Small Green Bee eater with its favorite food, the bee!

This shot was possible because we spent time studying the behavior of this bird from a distance. These Bee eaters always have a favorite perch and will visit them quite often like dragon flies. So the key is to look for these perches , once that is done .. you will have to carefully but slowly go near with a hide/car and make sure you don't disturb the bird .. with little patience u might get some good pics..

Hi Goutham.
Shared shot is very special and fine. I am impressed with low key of its execution. Dark smooth BG is amazing as well as backlit and illumination of the bird back. Exposure and reproduction of all details of the main subject is ultimate too as well as wonderful composition of the image. Warm regards and TFS.

Hello Goutham,
This is really a beauty....What I like most are the fantastic colors of this bird. Impossible to live with this colors of any bird in my region...I mean with no camouflage.... As usual a perfect focus and WB. Superb.....Another masterpiece from close range with excellent clarity and fantastic sharp details.
Thanks for sharing!
