    Nice picture with clear details, Abhirup. Bee-eaters tend to have favorite perches and come back to the same perch regularly. Thanks for sharing.

    Lovely to see you got both in a single frame. Beautiful colours and good eye contact from both. Nice capture. Thanks for sharing.

    It would have been great if light had fallen on the eyes. These tiny birds have some very nice colours. From a distance the shades don't often come out well. In right lighting conditions and close approach the colours come out well. A few years ago, had followed these beauties in a place near ranganathittu. These birds come catch a bee or insect and come back to the same perch. The way they squeeze out the toxins is interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
