Black- Naped Monarch

When I spotted an azure flying bird, at Ganeshgudi , I was pretty sure it was the Black naped Monarch Flycatcher (Hypothymis azurea )- its azure blue lighting up the sky. The black ring like feature on the neck looked velvety. It was a pleasure watching the bird, carry out sorties from its perch, catching flying insects.
In the first photograph, the flycatcher had just taken a dip, and hence looks all ruffled up. Later on its all dried, groomed and ready for a date.
