Green Bee-Eaters are different from the European Bee-Eaters I sometimes post. They frequent the southern parts of Israel, whereas the European Bee-Eaters can be seen in the Center and North parts of Israel.

What do I like about this photo? The composition is beautiful, from the colorful birds contrasting against the differently colored background, and the complex tree branches providing additional interest to the photo. I used an open aperture to create a shallow depth of field, so the Bee-Eaters and the branches are in focus, while the background is blurred. This way there's good separation between the subject and the background.

What would I want to improve? There's little detail in the photo, as it was taken from a distance and cropped pretty heavily. I would have liked to be closer to be able to get more details...
