[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A small, mostly green Bee-eater. As with other Bee-eaters the bill is long, slender and down curved. The bill is black and the feet and legs are dark pinkish. The upperparts are bright green. The underparts and outer flight feathers are a rich orange. The Little Bee-eater has a black collar separating the yellow throat from the orange breast. The centre feathers of the tail are green, and the outer feathers are  orange. It has a broad, dark line extending back from the eye, and a turquoise patch just above the eye. Little Bee-eaters are a common species of bushveld, and open woodland, prefers areas with some open ground and reasonably low perches.

the focus is to soft !

Hello Nyala, superbe capture de ce petit guêpier, les couleurs sont splendides et contrairement à Aleks, je ne trouve pas que le focus soit trop soft, une très bonne profondeur de champs et un superbe backround complète bien ta jolie composition,
moi je dis: Bravo,
