[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is another picture of a Brown-headed Barbet I took in February this year. This bird is rather shy but when it comes to robbing guavas, it is least affected by a photographer taking its pictures.

The Brown-headed Barbet, Megalaima zeylanica, is an Asian Barbet.The Barbets get their name from the bristles that fringe their heavy bills.

Hello Ram,
What a beautiful bird that blends in perfectly with it's surroundings. Tac sharp focus showing exceptional detail and colors are gorgeous. I really like all the greenery surrounding the Barbet and especially the view of the fruits. Exposure is right on the money and you obtained very good DOF with your f/5.6 aperture. Well done!!
