[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Merops is a large genus of bee-eaters, a group of near passerine birds in the family Meropidae. The members of this Old World family are characterised by richly coloured plumage, slender bodies and usually elongated central tail feathers. They predominantly eat insects, especially bees, wasps and hornets, which are caught in the air.

All bee-eaters are in the genus Merops and subfamily Meropinae except for three Asiatic bearded bee-eaters in the subfamily Nyctyornithinae.

eline sağlık hocam pek guzel yakalanmis.

Hi Suleyman
great with very saturated colours and good sharpness

A 'wow'...
Superb image through its colouration, the lighting, the decisive moment, the blurred background...

Suleyman, I sometimes wonder why they keep the insect in their beak. Last week it rained here and some insect came out and the way they catch and holding them is superb. you have done it exactly corect. Ganesh

Süleyman eline sağlık çok güzel bir kare.
