These are magnificent little birds. You see them all over the south of Sri Lanka. This first one was taken in Yala NP. Their feathers are so fine they look like hairs.
Below, on the left we have another small green bee eater and on the right, for obvious reasons a blue tailed one. Their prefered method of feeding is fly just in front of large mammals, preferably an elephant. Then, as the elephant walks it stirs up the grass enough to disturb the insects the bee-eaters feed on, allowing them to capture them. At least that's what David Attenborough said so it must be true!
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
