The photo shows a couple of Bee-Eaters resting on a branch, one with an ant he just caught.

What do I like about this photo? It's very clean - just the Bee-Eaters, and the branch. No distractions. Almost has an artistic look to it. The beautiful colors of the Bee-Eaters naturally steal the show, and we get to see the back-side, which is arguably even more beautiful than their fronts. The ant in the beak of the right Bee-Eater adds some interest to the story, as well. The amount of detail is very nice, too.

What would I want to improve? Lighting could be a bit better - the face of the right Bee-Eater, especially, is shaded and less clear than I'd like it to be.
