Green Bee-eater [Merops orientalis]

When we were looking for migratory birds a few months back on the shores of the reservoir of Veer dam, we spotted this Green Bee-eater. Although Green Bee-eater is a native and commonly found bird, it is no less beautiful than the migratory birds we were looking for. Look at the colors and finish. Doesn't it look like from paradise?
