Until that day, Green-billed Malkoha had been the most difficult bird for me to photograph as they are quite shy and often hide themselves among leaves. Then on that day, I got a glimpse of one in front of the Botanical Garden of Chittagong University. But the joy was short-lived as the bird quickly figured out I was watching it, and hurriedly went to the higher branches and kept itself out of sight. After waiting for another half an hour, I could finally photograph it.
