[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Goutham had provided a description of the adventure we had at Mavathur today and the rewarding experience of being able to shoot many birds, primarily Green Bee Eaters without a hide. Here is another picture shot from the car.

This is a Pied Bushchat female. We were trying to get the picture of the male as well as female. After some tries, this female became bolder and allowed us to get close enough to get this full frame picture.
