Hi all,

This is a picture of small green bee eater! Shooting pictures in these kind of back light is something i do and i like these settings very much and try to shoot pictures against light when ever I can!

The Green Bee-eater (Merops orientalis) (sometimes Little Green Bee-eater) is a near passerine bird in the bee-eater family. It is resident but prone to seasonal movements and is found widely distributed across sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal and the Gambia to Ethiopia, the Nile valley, western Arabia and Asia through India to Vietnam.

Hello Goutham,
Fantastic photo of this Green Bee-eater in splendid light and a very attractive dynamic pose. Superb sharpness, details and composition. Splendid colours, also in the blurred background.


Very nice composition. The tail has lot of details because of backlit situation.


Hello Goutham

Hello Goutham

best colour and sharpness.
best wishes,

Hello Mr.Goutham,
Really beautiful picture.Light and details are excellent.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice time,

Hello Goutham,
Wonderful catch with great details and beautiful light.

What a nice photo: the light, the composition and the pose are excellent. Photographing against the light working so well with the pastel colours of this bird. Nice natural perch too. Maybe a bit less empty space top and bottom.

Great presentation of this this little bee-eater!
What makes it stand out is the great pose, stretching out!
And the wonderfull backlight giving us all the details in the wingfeathers!
TFS, Ronny
