This is a pair of beautiful blue tail bee eaters!
Here there were 4 of then sitting on a branch and I tried to isolate 2 of them, the leaves on the left is a kind of distraction but i still like this picture for coz i got 2 of them in the same frame.

Goutham, One of the best Bee Eater pair pictures I have seen. The colors are unmatched, especially the orange around the neck.

Hello Goutham
Beautiful capture. well done.

Lovely pair you have here Goutham, the colours are amazing,I feel the leaves add on to the picture, rather than plain back ground, it shows it habitat.

jee karta he in ki tasveer khenchne ke lye india chla jaow excellent shot.

A fine pair of bee eaters in tandem Goutham, captured perfectly in their rich natural colours against a perfectly neutral BG. TFS it indeed my friend!

Hello Goutham,
what a wonderful picture of this pair of blue tail bee eaters taken with a superb sharpness and splendid natural colours, i like the lovely pose of the birds in a very nice composition, very well done.

Hi Goutham,

just before departing... I found this wonderful couple of Bee eaters of yours. I did'nt know that a Blue tail species even exists. They are definitely handsome in the evening light.

My best regards to you

Hello Goutham, wonderful capture. They look like clones. Good POV and composition. Like the natural colors here. The shallow depth really brings out the subject beautifully.

Hello Gouthan.

Excellent image, nice composition and colors.
