A stunning shot of this beautifully plumaged bird, captured in immaculate detail.
The bird and it's perch stand out from the totally OOF b/g so well, as if in 3D.
Top notch bird photography, Bill, and I hope my floral gong says it all.

this shot has everything - well lit , sharp , blurred background , even the angle of the branch compliments the bird's angle and its tail.

After years of trying I don't have a shot of a bee-eater as good as this. No distractions and wonderful light and sharpness. European bee-eaters are one of my favourites.
