[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The green bee-eater (Merops orientalis) (sometimes little green bee-eater) is a near passerine bird in the bee-eater family. It is resident but prone to seasonal movements and is found widely distributed across sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal and the Gambia to Ethiopia, the Nile valley, western Arabia and Asia through India to Vietnam. They are mainly insect eaters and are found in grassland, thin scrub and forest often quite far from water. Several regional plumage variations are known and several subspecies have been named.

Hi, Ram. Nice diagonal composition of this beautiful bird from the bee eater family. Excellent sharpness, exposure and having the catch light in the eye makes it a nice portrait. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Ram,
The diagonal composition with the bee-eater looking in the same direction is very special and attractive. Good sharpness, details and natural colours. The catch light in the eye is beautiful.
