Abelharuco,European Bee-eater (Merops apiaster)

Maybe the last pic of this species for now...

Once we found the bee eaters colony we spent there two days trying to get different pic of this birds specially in flight. At this time they are already feeding the chicks and spent all day doing this.These colonies have nests with up to about 2 meters deep.
To get this pics we choose one nest and set the AF on the way of the bird...

Hope You like it and have a good Sunday!

Thanks for viewing...
