Default Start of my trip to South Africa

Well I'm finally back in England after 4 weeks travelling around South Africa. I managed to see 160 different species and photograph about 156 of them. The final count isn't in yet and some are only good enough for IDing. So I will start with 2 shots and keep posting as I get around to them, but it might take a while as I have over 6500 photo to go through, although only 3200 are with my 7DMk2

To start with, a new lifer
White-fronted Bee-eater, Merops bullockoides

White-throated Swallow, Hirundo albigularis

Don't think I would like to eat bees, but the bee eater is a really nice shot. Glad you got a great trip and some successes...
