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.
Not suggesting don't post them here.
Keep them coming.
