White-throated Bee-eater

@ Samburu NR, Kenya

I never thought I would be able to take such a clear photograph of a bird.

As our guide stopped for this bee-eater I hurried to take a few shots quickly, so unfortunately I didn´t get the tail feathers completely. Normally those birds fly away when you stop for them, but here I was lucky.
