Black Bee-eater

(Merops gularis)
The first set of these photos were taken in Korup National Park close to the Rengo Camp clearing. The birds had a nest hole in the bank of the Rengo River. The light was very poor under the forest canopy as can be seen by the exposure times and ISO setting. The last two photos were taken from on top of 'the rock' on the so called Nature Trail at Nyasoso, Mount Kupe.
