Title: European Bee-eater

Date: 26 December 2016

Location: Eden on the Bay,Blouberg, Cape Town

Description: I was tipped off by a friend that the European bee-eaters were nesting quite near to my home in Cape Town. I was really excited as i had never seen nor photographed them before.

I was fascinated how they flew in and out of their nest, a hole in the sand, bringing bees, wasps, flies,moths to their hungry young. I was also thrilled to capture this image where an adult bee-eater was attempting to catch food for its young. It was mission successful for both bird and photographer!
