European Bee Eaters

I'm so lucky to have these visiting the garden to catch their food.


In the area there are a few colonies of them. This is more of a record shot and I look forward to getting closer to them.


Bee Eaters are seen perched on wires with their food. If the food has a sting (Bees and Wasps) then they bash them against the wire to break the stinger off before tossing them in the air and eating them.
