Rainbow Bee-eater

Rainbow Bee-eater (Image ID 36657)
CommentI went looking for Rainbow Bee-eaters after being advised that they were abundant at a local headland. Sure enough, they were everywhere! I took many photos, but chose this one to submit as it shows the back of the male (with the long tail streamer) and the front of the female. They were interesting to watch, as they kept returning to the same perch. One remained on the branch, while the other went off to find bees.
