Scarlet Minivet

The Scarlet Minivet, both male and female are very pretty. While the male shines in a bright scarlet colour, the female dons a striking yellow.

I spotted this female Scarlet Minivet while searching for the primates at the Hoolongopar Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary near Jorhat in Assam, North East India.

Though, I did not manage to get a close shot of this pretty bird, I somehow feel the surroundings make up for the lack of closeness. Thus making is a striking photograph. What do you think?
