Getting close to nature: Part 4

Continuing with the photos of bugs, bees and birds in this fourth installment of "Getting close to nature". This time its the Tiger Butterfly with Dragonfly, some unknown bugs and a bird called Scaly Breasted Munia. This bird, Scaly Breasted Munia, looks really exotic and I had never expected I would get to see these birds so closely. And ofcourse, where there are bees and bugs, there has to be a colony of Green Bee Eaters. A tree full of Green Bee Eaters is what I spotted one day. However it was not possible to get too close to this tree as the grass around this area was too tall and there were also snakes. So, I thought better use the 50X optical zoom and try to get as many photos of the Green Bee Eater as possible. I'll be sharing the photos of the Green Bee Eater in my next Post.
