Carmine Frenzy

By rontear  
The sand banks of the Luangwa River are high, ideal nesting location for Carmine Bee Eaters. These have been on my hit list for some time!! Very difficult to approach and photograph, here a frenzy of activity !!!

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!

Very nice to pick out the flashes of colour against the sandy b/g. Great movement.

I'm amazed at the amount of action you've manged to capture here Ron. I've only ever seen this before as video or film on TV.

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