I don't know how you find so many beautiful and exotic birds...and plants! Terrific shot, as always.

What a wonderful bird and image, Himadri! I love the little 'barbet bristles' around the beak.

The more I look at this image the more I realize just how small this beautiful bird is. A wonderful looking bird on a terrific perch. Great image.
