This bird was fearless, it let me come pretty close. This photo eventually landed in Windows Theme dedicated to Indian Wildlife : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/indian-wildlife-download-theme
The green bee-eater is a near passerine bird in the bee-eater family. It is resident but prone to seasonal movements and is found widely distributed across sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal and the Gambia to Ethiopia, the Nile valley, western Arabia and Asia through India to Vietnam. They are mainly insect eaters and they are found in grassland, thin scrub and forest often quite far from water.
