Photoshoot session with the Blue-throated Bee-eater

 I was fortunate today to be greeted by two Blue-throated Bee-eaters.  It was an up-close and personal session which has been rare lately.  Today the weather was hot and humid and like what the weatherman has predicted on the local tv news will herald the coming of the El Nino phenomena.  Some gusts of wind have brought many swarms of bees to the park which were the target of these bee-eaters.  Here's more pics of its beautiful chestnut mantle, blue throat and greenish blue breast.....

Note the dark brown iris
