Black Bee-eater

(merops gularis)

(merops gularis)

The Black Bee-eater is a spectacular colourful bird, more blue than black. It is a small forest bee-eater occurring from West Africa to Uganda. These images are rather poor being taken into a misty back light. I have much better images which you can find in my Cameroon photo gallery here.
