[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Blue Throated Bee Eater (Merops viridis)
These were in season earlier part of the month in the north. They were found in large numbers in a field. Taken from my car with the lens mounted on a bean bag it was the safest way of getting close without spooking the bird.

Hi Phil,

Another beaty before your lens,a nice capture of this colorfull bee eater,one with a longer tail than the bee eaters I have seen,thanks


hi Phil

Impressive sharpness and bokeh effect on this shot. The 800mm lens may be capable of better sharpness than this?

tfs, bill
