[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a juvenile European Bee-eater, recognizable at the more buffish colours and more greenish (less bluish) colours.
The picture was taken out of the car, obviously juveniles are also less elusive than adult birds.

Hi Tom

A splendid shot of this lovely bee-eater!
What a terrific moment too, with a tiny wasp in its beak! Excellent POV here and lovely pose from your subject - with its head sufficiently turned to ensure that nice little catchlight in the eye, too.
Excellent sharpness on the details and very good exposure, too.

Bravo and TFS
