[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Always I've seen with some envy, the pictures people posted here of the gorgeous bee-eater. This last trip in france I finally had the chance to see, study and photograph them as well. This is not the best portrait I have, but a little different then the multitude of bee-eater pics posted here


ps I had to laugh a bit when under medium I had to pick color, cuz these birdies have color for sure

pps I saw that vanni has just posted a similar image earlier today..well done

Hi Jeroen,
De scherpte mag dan misschien niet perfect zijn, ik vind het een zwaar ondergewaardeerde foto. Unieke scene in mooi licht en natuurlijke kleuren.

Hi Jeroen,
nice composition. Interesting point of view. Nice situation.
Thanks for sharing,
