Hola Philippe
Una gran composición la que nos muestras de este abejaruco posado en esa rama tan atractiva, el fondo también de lujo.
Un saludo

Hello Philippe,
I missed this one.
Superb capture of a European Bee-eater with a bumblebee in its beak. Nice sharpness, compo. on the lichen-covered branch and pleasing neutral BG.
Fine shot!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan
