An in flight Bee-eater with a Bee (or something like that..something delicious;-).
Great work!

Hello Rob,

Great in flight capture of this very beautiful Bee Eater.
Perfect sharpness and composition.
Fantastic colors and details.
The bird does stand out superbly against the steal blue sky.
Excellent work. A real joy to look at. TFS!!!

Warmest regards, Harry


What a super shot! Excellent detail, sharpness and POV. The in-flights are not easy, especially of small birds. You've done wonderfully here.

Best Regards,

Hello, Rob.
You could not get a sharper image of a bird in flight.
Talk about arrested motion.
And how exciting that he even has something in his beak.
The colors are so rich and beautiful.
A fantastic POV. An excellent photo.
Congratulations and TFS. : )

Beautiful capture!
