Bee-eater

Paddy's Flat, NSW. view map

This bird was very active catching honey bees taking about
one per minute. It would hold the bee across the
abdomen and whack the sting on the branch it was
sitting on to remove it before swallowing it. I was
impressed with just how many it caught in a small space
of time.

And I suppose that is a bee that he's holding? Great shot! Vote!
