|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.|

What a fascinating close-up, Biswarup!
How did you get that close to the bird? Wow!
Great sharpness and colours.
Agréable valorisation du sujet sous un bon angle de prise de vue.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

"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?
