Great capture of this bee-eater. What a super bird in its natural habitat. Those colors, the catch light in its eye and details in the feathers are wonderful. Thanks for posting and keep your eyes on the road! Well done and have a great weekend.

Hi Carl, Fabulous capture of this Swallow-tailed Bee-eater my friend, Yes indeed birds can be very challenging at the best of times and when photographing them from a vehicle can be even more of a challenge, superb sharpness with fine detail, splendid exposure/white balance to support these beautiful natural colours, great effort here Carl and very well done,

WOW Boet, this is fantastic! What a wonderful opportunity you had to get a shot at this beautiful Swallow-tailed Bee-eater.
I like the catch light in the eye. The plumage has fantastic detail and beautiful colours. Excellent POV. I can see you must've had a swell time in Etosha. Very well done and thanks for sharing.

We don't have Bee-eaters here where I live, but I wish we did. They are so gorgeous with their bright iridescent feathers and colorful markings. You managed to sneak up on this little guy and get a fantastic photo before he decided to head for higher ground. Excelelnt detail, exposure and DOF. Well done!!

Très bon angle de prise de vue et excellente profondeur de champ valorisant bien le sujet sous une belle lumière.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Interesting green plumage of this Bee-eater species. Nice to see it digging its nest in the embankment, but it has a look to the photographer too;-). Nice diagonal composition and interesting color-contrast.
