I have to go again for the in flight Bee Eaters John, they look fascinating colourful birds.
Again you have brought to us all an amazing selection of our feathered friends, a very big thanks for sharing with us all.


Best regards Paul

Thanks Rich, I needed to throw a lot of failed flight photos but was lucky to get a few savers, they fly so fast

Another great series - my favourite is the Bea-eater with full downward extension of the wings - very, very nice.

Hi Alex, thanks, the bee-eaters will only stay another few days before leaving here so I was pleased to get the photos.

Hi Rich, thanks, I'm not sure if it happens to you, but for myself I getting close to an eagle really gets my adrenaline pumping.

Hello John. Beautiful images. They are very clean and sharp. I especially like the female shrike with lunch. Very well done.
