Blue-Tailed Bee-Eater.
You can tell this one is built for speed :)
It has such super sleek and smooth body for cutting through the air.

Bee-eaters catch their prey on the wing. They look out for suitable prey from a tree branch or high wire (about 7m and above) then swoop down onto it. They snap up their victims with an audible click, their long, narrow bills keeping these dangerous prey a good distance away from the eyes. To get rid of the sting, the insect is vigorously whacked against the perch.
