[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Blue-throated Barbet (Megalaima asiatica) is an Asian barbet, seen across the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Barbets and toucans are a group of near passerine birds with a world-wide tropical distribution. The barbets get their name from the bristles which fringe their heavy bills; this species eats fruits and insects.

Hello Biswarup,
"Up close and personal" is how I would describe this cute image. What a beautifully marked bird who seems to find either you or your lens quite interesting. Maybe it sees a reflection of itself in your lens?
