The Blue-tailed bee-eater or Merops philippinus is a near passerine bird in the bee-eater family Meropidae. It breeds in southeastern Asia. It is strongly migratory, seen seasonally in much of peninsular India and Thailand.

Paying attention to the bird you are watching is the most important thing to do before the shutter roars; I can’t ignore the beauty of this bird and watching it fly like a boomerang to its prey is an amazing spectacle.
