WOW! Goutham, what a catch!
Ofcourse for you and the bird.
Superbly composed and framed and taken with a fantastic POv, focus and sharpness, this one is a real beauty.Lovely colours and smooth clean background.

So the Bee Eaters are not necessarily dependent on the staple diet of bees, Goutham.
This fellow with a butterfly in its beak shows it is not averse to chage in the menu once in a while. :)
Superb capture and a unique action shot.
Well done and TFS.

Goutham, I agree with you as to the crop...perhaps positioning the bird a little more to the right would make it...well...even MORE perfect! This shot is stunning even without that correction. It never ceases to amaze me how the capture of the detail of feathers on birds in photographs shows us beauty we never quite notice as they're soaring by. You've got a great presentation here.

A top quality image with wonderful composition and great details
There isn't much interest in this fantastic photo. It deserves great attention. A very beautiful sharp detailed photo in beautiful natural colours. Very nice pose with its prey. Ideal POV. Maybe little crop from the right makes a better composition.

What can I say.....
awesome shot here, i don't agree with your remarks, sometimes you should break the rule and have a subject dead center. Just keep the eye and bill on the golden rule line!
amazing, respect for this picture

Perfectly captured and presented. Thank you!

Beautiful shot Goutham. I think the b-fly is in just the right "position"..
Especially if you happen to be a bee eater ;-)
