As I have access only to animals in local parks and ponds, it is a pleasure for me to see such exotic species as you have managed to capture and in their natural setting, Ron.
I am sure I have seen these Bee Eaters in nature programme on TV, possibly one of David Attenborough's productions.
Fascinating life style they seem to have, and roosting in the sandy cliffs.
Ronnie,

Such beautiful and colourful birds. Strange how they nest in the dirt and not in trees.........Sandy

This stood out for me because it did not follow the rigid approach of many bird photographers. A lovely shot that tells so much more about the birds themselves.

Fairy-tale beauty with a hint of messy reality in the background - I'm so glad you didn't clone out the bird-strikes!

Agreed. This is about the natural world.

The colours of these birds is so beautiful - lovely to see them coming and going, if only captured in one moment.
