[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
"The white-cheeked barbet or small green barbet (Megalaima viridis) is a species of barbet found in southern India. It is very similar to the more widespread brown-headed barbet (or large green barbet) (Megalaima zeylanica) but this species has a distinctive supercilium and a broad white cheek stripe below the eye and is endemic to the forest areas of the Western Ghats and adjoining hills. The brown-headed barbet has an orange eye-ring but the calls are very similar and the two species occur together in some of the drier forests to the east of the Western Ghats. Like all other Asian barbets they are mainly frugivorous although they may sometimes eat insects and they use their bills to excavate nest cavities in trees"

Hello Navnith,
What a lovely bird you've captured in this breathtaking image. Not often do we see a bird with green coloring in it's plumage, what a beauty. The focus is sharp allowing us to view it's fine features and gorgeous markings. Exposure is perfect and the composition is quite eye pleasing.

renk uyumu , yapraklar ile kuşun karşıt duruşları mükemmel
