Face to face.

The green bee-eater (Merops orientalis) (sometimes little green bee-eater) is a near passerine bird in the bee-eater family. It is resident but prone to seasonal movements and is found widely distributed across sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal and the Gambia to Ethiopia, the Nile valley, western Arabia and Asia through India to Vietnam.

Hello Biswarup,

Prefect portrait to me. Like the way you kept its eyes above the middle line( if we divide the frame 50-50). Nice details and its POV.
Thanks for sharing,
