Hi everyone,

It's been a long time since I last posted but I have a good(ish) reason... basically me and my family packed up the house and shipped it to Singapore where we are now living! So I've been very busy for the last few months, but hopefully can start posting here again Smile

Here is a Red Bearded Bee Eater that I photographed in Panti Forest in Malaysia. This is a very shy bird so I and my other photographer buddies were well chuffed to have had this experience with not just one but two of these birds Grin

I hope you like this one, and Happy Lunar New Year as everyone is celebrating over here Smile
