Nice composition and beautiful colours! A ver fine shot.

Regards, Peter

Very nice shot Tom.
Colors and the way the bird does stand out against the blue sky are beautiful.
Lovely pose of the Bea-eater.
I prsonally would have cropped a small part of the lower side because the part of a branch overthere on the right side is a bit distracting.
Thanks for sharing.
Best regards, Harry

Hi Tom,
as Harry said, a very nice picture of this 'self cleaning' bee eater. The colours are natural, yet displaying al the fine colours of the bee eater. I agree with Harry about the little twig on the bottom.
Cheers, JAcob

Hi Tom, great shot, I love the way the subject stands out against the BG of sky. Colours and focus is good. I agree with Harry regards the cropping. Well done. Regards

Hello Tom!

Great shot of bee eater - I never saw this species in the nature, because this bird like warmer climate - I know that there is some nests in south east of my country, but it is still very rare bird in Poland.
