Que super foto. Nem sabia que havia bichos destes em Portugal.
Fazes maravilhas com o teu telescópio. (Em zoom seria o equivalente de quantos mm ?)
Boa continuação.

A beautiful capture of this bee eater, Luis.
The focus is a tad soft, but the colors are magnificent
and the POV is fantastic/ The bug in the beak is a great bonus.
TFS. : )

Hi Luis,

an excellent capture of this beeeater,I like the colors and the fact that he is really consuming the bee,well done and TFS,


Amazing. I really was not expecting to see a bee in its mouth. Very well done, indeed.

This is a great shot. Great composition and well framed. The bird is very colourful, and you managed to catch it just at the right moment.

The only thing that lets the image down is the background. It is very dark, and dulls rest of the image's colour.

hello luis,
wonderful bee-eater! :-)
and you have the proof:
it´s eating a bee!
excellent pov & composition,
good strong colors.
well seen & done, thor.
