Default Little Bee Eater

Little Bee Eater sighted at South Luangwa, Zambia, September 2011.
50D, 400mmf/5.6L, 1/1000s, f/8, ISO-500, +0.7Ev
Edited - Cloning & Spot Healing brushing to remove a few twigs/branches/leaves that were cluttering the frame. Color/Hue/Saturation not touched.
The reddish brown background is because of dry Mopani trees.



Thanks for C&C.

Beautiful bird. I can't believe how many varieties of bee-eaters you have in Zambia.

Thanks Bansky. During my last visit I have seen Little Bee Eaters, Southern Carmine Bee Eaters & Red Throated Bee Eaters. There could be a few more varieties. I'll try and find them in my next visit.
