Chestnut Headed Bee Eater (Merops leschenaulti)

This is a migratory specie taken earlier in the year in Penang and they do not appear to go further south than the state of Perak.

Taken in the mid day sun. I hope you like the square format.

Hi Phil,
Yes, This is a great photo of this bird. I love the sharpness, the oof background and the lovely rich colours. Must say that the high end equipment does pay off. Extremely sharp with the converter.Great stuff!
Well done. (the square crop on this one is not my personal favorate, would like to see it in a portrait frame)

Hello Phil,

This is a lovely, sharp and deatailed shot showing good colour and texture.
I'm not too bothered about the shape of the format but, in this instance, the square works well as it has given you a very good diagonal composition for the perch.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
