Rainbow Bee-eater (in flight)

Shot ages ago at North Pine Dam. Heavily cropped, but I liked the way the light through the wings glows.

    Tis pretty specky eh ? :)
    Shot on that day we were chasing birds of prey at Gold Scrub Lane.
    There's a definite technique with these guys - very very slowly.

    I would have to agree with you mate and so darn difficult to get in focus in the 1st place. Ask me I have a hard drive full of the dam things - out of focus ones that is.

  • David de Groot said:

    I think James posted one recently doesn't it.

    It makes it look as if it's just holding out a glider. :) Nice shot, Dave!
