Hi Abhinav - Beautiful Barbet. Very well captured even such difficult angle. Catching light on its eye made it attractive. I like its colour, as well as its majestic neck position. Thanks for sharing. Regards and good night - Srikumar

Lovely eye contact!!!
All green as the Indian Parakeet!!!
Great colours.
Short and concise notes. I like that.
Greetings from Canada from Mario.
