Hello Jiri,
Another wonderful photo taken from a superb angle and POV. Excellent details. Outstanding colors and perfect focus. I love this gorgeous specie of birds nesting also in my country close to my hometown.....It is very difficult to catch the colors of this shy bird....
Thanks for sharing!

Hallo Jiri
Bee-eaters are probably one of the most featured birds on the gallery but a bird that I will always look at as they are so beautiful. I like your vertical composition as it complements the stylish and slender appearance of the bird's body. Maybe not your best but your 1st photo of this bird and I am sure you are very chuffed with yourself. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ciao Jiri, nice scene with cute bird on a beautiful blurry BG, fine details, splendid light, wonderful colors and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Jiri.
I also like this species so much. There are many birds of the species around. However, I could shot them only on a wire or at similar poor surroundings. You managed to get a pictorial shot with impressive BG. Subject at whole is very nice and details of the image are very good too. TFS and best wishes.

Very fine capture of the Bee-eater in a fine pose. Great sharpness and beautiful colours which stand out nicely against the BG. Very well composed too.
Regards Siggi
