  8. Thanks Bhupesh, you are right, I shot this in Mysore zoo, bird was sitting on a tree branch in an enclosure made out of steel mesh (as you can see in the background), just could not avoid it...

  19. Incredible bird. Every time I see a picture of a Great Hornbill, I think it looks like it's wearing banana on its head.
