Lovely shot with tons of action. Bee eaters must be amongst the beautiful birds in the world and I always love watching them Grin

I can see how hard these must have been to get. Almost the same colours as the red banks. So many of them. I have only ever seen a pair!

Such a frenzy of activity - these are beautiful birds and to capture their coming and going takes a certain skill. Love this action shot!

You lucky beggar, you obviously had some good guide while you were there Ron, very envious, but not in a nasty way.
