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. They are mainly insect eaters and they are found in grassland, thin scrub and forest often quite far from water. Several regional plumage variations are known and several subspecies have been named.

Hi Ram.
It is a favorite for me species. There are many birds of the species around our gardens. Captured scene (birds on a wire but against the sky) is also typical for us. However, nice shot of the birds is exception. They are too cautious. Yours is fine. Bird with wire create an impressive colourful X-composition and BG is simply splendid. TFS and best regards.

Hello Ram

Excellent photo of the Green Bee Eater,
fine POV and specially the way it is framed
with the wire each one diagonally but the
opposite side of the other, in its Bee Eater
characteristic pose in a beautiful back0light effect, TFS
