Green bee-eater, Kolkata, West Bengal by Soumadri Chowdhury

Picture Story

The green bee-eater is one of the most vibrant birds that we can spot around our neighbourhoods. This photo is from an evening in spring when this bird was flying around in search of insects. It is during this time of the year that the number of insects increase drastically and these prolific hunters make easy work of these insects. The green bee eater chose this branch amidst a shrub to scan the area around, poised to swoop down and catch it's prey.
