Photographer's Note

Another nice bird ,a bee-eater seen in Udawalawe national park.
In comparism to photograph big animals I find it very difficult to photograph little birds even when you have good long lens.
I needed many attemps to get a shot like this one, because nearly everytime , adjusting the camera/lens settings this bird was sitting at an other branch a few meters further.
So please tell me nothing about composition,I planned nothing,except the camera settings, it was just a lucky shot.
I was thinking about cloning out this orange dot, but I think it is a blossom and belongs there and and I`m more a photographer than a photoshopper.

The bee-eaters are a group of near passerine birds in the family Meropidae, containing three genera and twenty-seven species. Most species are found in Africa and Asia, with a few in southern Europe, Australia, and New Guinea. They are characterised by richly coloured plumage, slender bodies, and usually elongated central tail feathers. All have long down-turned bills and medium to long wings, which may be pointed or round. Male and female plumages are usually similar.

Have a good day and stay healthy whatever will come!
