Fantastic shot Mike, we've been watching for Oriole's here in Missouri but so far just two one day an nothing else. Great shot!

Harry

Thank you very much Harry. There are two males here where I shot this one, and they are so illusive. They drive me nuts trying to get any kind of a decent shot of them. The foliage on the trees is so thick, that it will be pure luck if I get another good chance.

No doubt, the two we had in our back yard stayed high in the tree and never really stopped moving. I think I got one shot but it was too dark and a ton of noise. Again great work!

Belas your bee-eaters are exceptional and very pretty.
Had you thought in a thread with all your bee-eaters in one place? Be captivating viewing.
