The Green Bee Eater, also called as the Little Green Bee Eater is a skillful predator known for its aerial sorties. This petite green colour bird is no bigger than a sparrow. It’s green colour has shades of reddish brown on the head and neck, which is ornamented with a prominent black ‘necklace’. We were awe-struck by the the Bee Eater’s hunting technique. It launches after its prey snapping it in a mid-air sortie and then circles back to its perch where the victim, normally a Bee, is thrashed against the perch to remove the sting and gobbled up.
Here’s a collection of images of this tiny wonder. All images were shot with the D80 , 300mm mounted with the 2x TC.
