This is a first class close up of the Apiaster . The feather details are excellent with such natural colours. A nice pose with the bird looking to one side. Well done!
Thanks for sharing,

This is a stunning shot of this Little Bee-eater. it is such a clear image you can even see the blue clearly around the eyes.
Very well done and thanks for sharing.
Great shot of this little bird. Nice sharp focus, good exposure with a soft light. Beautifull color saturation. Nice bohkey in the BG. Compostion is a bit centered, you had room to crop differently, but may be you had your reason to leave it in certer. I tried a WS with a different cropping, it is not necessarly better. Excellent picture and TFS.

Bee-eaters are one of my favourite bird species, and this one of yours is even more than a delight to look at. The colours in its plumage is so beautifully bright and eye-catching and the stripe of blue above its eye is and additional bonus as it looks like eye shadow and that it has been powered and puffed for the occasion. Just love the point of view and the composition. This is really a fine image which was in my personal opinion very soft on the eye and a delight to appreciate. Indeed great photography you achieved here. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

This is a beautiful species and your incredible camera work has brought that beauty out superbly. The centred composition works well here with the little ones pose as it is. Outstanding work Pierre, thank you.

It is said the beeeaters are the most colourful birds and you have really brought out this little ones colours to perfection.Sharp focus giving us excellent definition as well against the soft blurry BG, well done.

Wow this is really nice. Great colors and focus on this little guy. It really interesting how these birds remove the stingers from bees. Well done.

brilliant colours and fine details! The grey background serves perfectly well to further increase the delight of the bird's bright colours. By some cropping at the right as performed in Athila'a workshop also the composition is a winner. Lovely portrait of Meropa pusillus!
With thanks, and best regards,
