Brown-headed Barbet – Colombo, Sri Lanka

The Brown-headed Barbet (Megalaima zeylanica) is a common resident that frequents our garden almost daily.  I wanted to try and get a shot of it at eye level which was easier said than done. To take this shot, I setup a hide on the roof near a fruiting tree and waited for what seemed like a life time. Although the birds were feeding, it was difficult to get a clear shot because of the branches and leaves that kept getting in the way. Pretty happy with the end result.
