Green Bee Eater

By mrsvee
Hi, Everyone.
Thank you to everybody who voted & commented on my last upload.
This is a Green Bee Eater which I found whilst on a boat trip in a little fishing boat in the backwaters of Palolem in South Goa, India.
The boat was tiny and quite rocky which made it a bit difficult to keep my camera steady.
All comments are very welcome and appreciated.

I think you did really well to capture this, especially as you were on a rocky boat. I saw a couple of these when we went to Egypt but the little blighters were too quick for me. Well captured, lovely colour and detail. Tracey
