[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The coppersmith barbet, crimson-breasted barbet or coppersmith (Psilopogon haemacephalus), is a bird with crimson forehead and throat which is best known for its metronomic call that has been likened to a coppersmith striking metal with a hammer. It is a resident found in the Indian subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia. Like other barbets, they chisel out a hole inside a tree to build their nest. They are mainly fruit eating but will take sometimes insects, especially winged termites.

Very nice picture with natural color and excellent composition!
Congratulation and thanks for sharing it.

Nice shot. Sharpness is little more!

Hi Ram,

The branches are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Coppersmith Barbet. The light is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.
