Hello Jacques!
Wonderful capture! I love the way they are playing. The colours are beautiful and the background is perfectly unsharp. I will add it to my favorites. TFS!

Hello Jacques,
a fine capture and well captured interaction between the two bee eaters. Also a fine composition. The underside of the tails are somewhat overexposed. With a little postprocessing (make a selection of the tail and reduce exposure a bit) that can be fixed.
Regards, Jacob

Hello,

A newcomer here, but this is one of the best images I have seen to date. Excellent exposure and DOF. Just a pity the tip of the tail is missing. I would have been inclined to clone the feather ends in.
Well done.
