The blue throated barbet The blue throated barbet by Sudipto Sarkar is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License. Spotted this beautiful creature right outside my uncle’s house this year, when I went to my cousin’s wedding… My mom and dad and aunts all said it was a Kingfisher (or at least a fisher). The shape of the head didn’t sit right for a fisher, but I was expecting it to be a species of fisher nonetheless. Searching by all descriptions failed. I tried, red crown, blue crest etc. What finally did help was “Birds of West Bengal” and there it was! A Blue Throated Barbet. And may god bless the geniuses who worked on Google’s image search. 🙂 EXIF Info Exposure f/5.6 1/1250 sec ISO 1600 Focal Length in 35mm 450 Date taken 2017:03:13 12:58:51 Camera NIKON D3200 Spread the love Tweet Post navigation The rockstarThe Jungle Babbler 4 Comments Beautiful iridescent blue captured in this pretty bird!! Reply Thank you Steven… 🙂 Reply In spite of current complaints and lawsuits against Google, I find them to be FABULOUS for all my searching needs, Sudipto. Your image is textbook and would certainly show up in Google images, if one looked! Reply Absolutely Ginnie! Looking past their violations of Privacy rights (alleged and otherwise), they're actually good at what they do… 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
