Found these three green bee eating birds on a water pipe. They seem to be having a good time, even though it was the same hot afternoon where I had clicked the pictures posted on the last two days. I as usual tried inching closer after I had used the maximum zoom available on the 70-300mm lens.
The result of my trying to inch closer was just two birds! And when I tried to take one more step all the three had flown a little distance ahead.

Nice ones! I have seen many of these birds, but always from a distance, and when I havent had my camera along…these are nice pics…… i remembered vaguely a nursery rhyme we used to sing about three birds on a tree and then one flies away and then there are two… and then one more flies away… and so on… do you know this???
oh do they eat bees? i have never seen green bees as such
hmm nice….out in hot after noon it takes something
Anu unfortunately no, I do not know the rhyme.
Doli, I too started noticing them quite recently, since I got my zoom lens. 😀
Tarun, how come you are not posting anything on your blogs?
Seeing these birds for the first time.
Chitra they are quite common in Gurgaon.
