Merops apiaster=(tr):Arı kuşu
The bee-eaters are a group of near passerine birds in the family Meropidae. Most species are found in Africa but others occur in southern Europe, Madagascar, Australia and New Guinea. They are characterised by richly coloured plumage, slender bodies and usually elongated central tail feathers. All are colorful and have long downturned bills and pointed wings, which give them a swallow-like appearance when seen from afar.

As the name suggests, bee-eaters predominantly eat flying insects, especially bees, wasps, which are caught in the air by sallies from an open perch. While they will pursue any type of flying insect, honey bees predominate in their diet.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arı kuşu, arı kuşugiller (Meropidae) familyasından Merops cinsini oluşturan temel besinleri arılar olan kuş türlerinin ortak adı.

Arılar ve diğer böceklerle beslenirler. Yatay kum tünellerine ya da toprak oyuklarına yuva yaparlar. Açık alanların sivri gagalı, uzun gövdeli ve uzun kuyruklu kuşlarıdır. Uzun, üçgen şekildeki kanatlarını süzülürken düz tutar ve ani hızlanma sağlayacak şekilde geriye ya da aşağıya doğru hafif vuruşlar yapar. Sesi berrak, tatlı ve sık tekrarlı bir prup prupdur.

Hi Cahit,

Great capture of these two beautiful bee-eaters. What a pose with the one under the other's wing. The opened wings and the tail feathers are marvelous. Superb details, magnificent colors and a wonderful diagonal composition.

Merhaba Cahit Bey,

Just beautiful and a photographic masterpiece. Love the colours and that red eye with a catchlight in it is what we are all striving for in bird photos. I took pictures of some bee-eaters years ago in Kenya and fell in love with their beauty.
