This photograph was contributed by Dr. Avinash Haridas, Consultant Neurosurgeon, KVM Hospital, Cherthala, Alappuzha district, Kerala.

Green barbet or white-cheeked barbet is a species of barbets found predominantly in the Western Ghats and the western coast of the Indian peninsula. It is mainly frugivorous, and in this picture, which was taken in Cherthala, Alappuzha (Venice of the East) in Kerala, it is eating the seed and the fleshy portions of the antioxidant-rich and disease-preventing “fruit of the angels"—the papaya fruit. A green barbet has an excellent ability to camouflage itself, and many people living in the areas that it frequently inhabits may go through an entire lifetime having never seen it even once—a bit like a brain tumor hiding within the brain parenchyma, which can be incredibly difficult for a novice to spot without the benefit of intravenous contrast. It reminds us all of the adage: “The eyes see what the mind knows."

This picture was taken with a Canon EOS 5D, a Canon EF 70–200 mm f/2.8L IS + 2x, ISO reading of 640, focal length of 400 mm, an aperture of f/7.1, and a shutter speed at 1/800 s.
