I had captured this 'Southern Carmine Bee-Eater' at Kruger National Park 🏞, during our staying at Mopani Rest Camp.

This is one of such beautiful coloured Bee eater, was in my list before plunge in the KNP.
I took this picture πŸ–Ό from our self-driven car πŸš–.

You could find this beautiful 🐦 even in Namibia πŸ‡³πŸ‡¦, Kenya πŸ‡°πŸ‡ͺ, Zimbabwe πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡Ό, Gabon πŸ‡¬πŸ‡¦, etc.

Hi Sri,
Wonderful photo again, very sharp with exceptional clarity. I love not only the composition and the colors besides the above, but also the sweet backlight coming from the top right corner, masterful! At the same time a very interesting species, which I never heard about before (made a search on the internet immediately), so I again learned something new. Great shot, congratulations!
Kind regards, LΓ‘szlΓ³

Hello Srikumar,
What a fantastic photo. So natural...... Sharpness, light, colours, pose and blurry background are all splendid. Nice composition too.


Well done with the light coming from the right to give great balance to the image.

Hi Srikumar
I like the curved branch. The bee eater looks sharp and the exposure is good.

What a great, great picture of this Bee-Eater! Fantastic, light, sharpness, color, details and composition.
CONGRATULATION. and thank you for sharing it.

Hi Srikumar,

The branch is framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Couthern Carmine Bee-Eater. The sharpness is excellent. The light is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Dear Srikumar,
iconic presentation of this bee-eater, crisp and clear, perfectly lighted, delightfully well composed. A pleasure also to see these subtle shades of colours dominated by mellow green. Congratulations!
Thank you!
With best regards,

Hi Srikumar
