Rainbow Bee-eater

Finally got a nice picture of one of my favourite birds.

Fantastic shot and with a bee! You've really captured the colours. I have a few old shots of rainbow bee-eaters but for some reason they all look dull. 

What an amazing looking bird.

Thanks :-) 

Was very pleased with the bee, but confess I didn't know it was there until I saw the photo at home...

The (electronic) viewfinder on my camera is awful, sometimes I can't even see the bird, and often I'm just using it for gross composition and just hoping that exposure, focus etc is ok. Sometimes leads to nice surprises when I see the shots on a computer (but more often, not...)
