Hi all. This is a Bee eater from Tanzania, Africa. He has a colorful bug to munch on.

Shot with a D3s with 200-400 f/4 + 1.4tc

Thanks Armando.

The background was quite far away so completely out of focus.

If I’m correct that’s a yellow-throated bee-eater.
Beautifull capture.

Hi Chris.

Thanks, I am not sure about the exact name but if that is not it, it should be :)
