Great shot! Lovely colours and composition. The branches frame the head nicely.

You caught him really exercising his lungs here. The pose is excellent. Good spot on exposure in the shade with the nice saturated colors. Detasil and DOF look excellent. Nice shot!

Probably a Madagascar Bee-eater, Merops superciliosus.
Good shot through the underbrush, at an angle that lets us freely view the head and most of the body, with only a few branches infront. Well done!

good photo, I love the birds pose and the background is very "natural"

This is a Southern Carmine Bee-eater - a summer visitor to Botswana.
Good capture of this bird especially since it was not out in the open - I like the catchlight in its eyes from the flash.
