bee eaters are nesting now in Israel. I spend the last day and night trying to catch them in their big colony (thousents) just above the sea of Galily.
I used a hide.

Hi Eyal, fantastic "angel" pose. Excelent coloures and POV.

this is very beautiful. My compliments!Wonderful colours and the sharpen.

Wow ! A very sharp approach shot.
First impression is magnificent.
Second impression;
Maybe clone out that dark blob on top ? It is slightly distracting in such an otherwise perfect shot.

I just bumped on this shot. I did not know your other work. Excellent stuff. You are in my favorites now :-)

Hi Eyal

What can I possibly say about this amazing, outstanding, awesome, perfect shot other than, wish is was mine! :-)

Eyal - this is one of the best shots I have seen. Thanks also for the note as it really explains who much time and effort is taken to get one of these winners. For those of us who want to excel, it is obvious it takes a lot of time and effort and discomfort. Excellent work my friend and 20/10 for this one. Hope to see this one break the 100 points in time!!

Really fantastic shot! Good DOF and colours.

I love it...

Hello Eyal

How could I miss this one?? - I just saw it on the oppening site today. Fanstatic action stop you did here and using on 1/400 shutter - amazing. Excellent sharpness, wonderful colours and perfect composition. - Really a second to none IMO. Would have been nice with a little more info on this beauty.


Hi Eyal,

Excellent capture
Perfect timing , sharpness , details , colours , POV , BG.

I'll put in my two cents in a simple way:
