Excellent macro of the bee Callie. I would not even dare to say how good this is. Stunning work, now also in my fav's
Ek hou van die manier wat hy sy koppie draai.., asof hy wil dat jy sy beste kant sien. The blue on the neck is almost the same as the skie. The focus on his head and under his neck looks a bit soft, if i compare it to the chest feathers??
He is still a beauty.

Great perspective and stunning detail of plumage. The capture of the Bee is a definite bonus. Nice one.

Great portrait Callie.
I think this is our best friend, eating a lot of bees and wasp. Great colours, POV and composition.
It's little soft on the head, but still a very good shot.
Very well done.

Well done on this splendid capture Callie.It must have taken some patience.The colours here all seem to compliment each other.
I've missed a few of your posts lately I think so I'll have to go back and have a look. Cheers, Steve.

Geez ... what a great shot!!! It's so sharp, even the insect in the beak of the bird. Amazing shot!

Great catch, double meaning :), these are not so big birds, so I admire this portrait, this is a good one, very good colours and details, the 'bokeh' is like a paint.

Uitstekend Callie! Could maybe be a little sharper.

This realy look as if the bird was painted. I think you were feeding him all the time dead bees and he got fed up?
Very nice colorfull picture with sharp details.

Prachtige close-up van de bijeneter Callie, ook de kleuen zijn schitterend, de veren kunnen gewoon geteld worden, zo scherp is deze foto.
Mooi verzorgd werk met perfecte nota.

Excellent Callie. I love the angle of his head and his eye on teh bee. Well done.

What a moment! I tried with the white-eyes and termites yesterday after the rain but ISO 800 and F5.6 at 1/60 would not permit me such luck. Beautiful colors and the details of the bee is a show off. :) Great shot!

Deze had ik dus net even gemist, Fantastische foto, schitterende kleuren pracht, the pof is very good, and the detail of the bee, very nice, Callie hartstikke goed.
I've been pretty preoccupied with other pursuits, which has to be the only excuse for missing a beauty like this. Great colours, sharpness, DOF and POV. I'm glad the unfortunate victim isn't a dragonfly this time ;-))
