... And I'm Back

European Bee-Eater With Catch

Remember yesterday's photo with the Bee-Eater taking off to grab some lunch? I'm happy to say he was successful - here he is returning with a bee in his beak!

What do I like about this photo? Three is a wonderful number of subjects in a photo. Each one is in a different, interesting pose, with the central one grabbing most of the attention, obviously. The colors are beautiful, and provide good contrast against the dull sky. I used a fast shutter speed (1/2500 of a second) to freeze the action, so the Bee-Eaters are sharp.

What would I want to improve? The center Bee-Eater is a bit hidden behind the branch and the right Bee-Eater. The sky is a bit too dull and too bright - a different background might have been a big improvement.
