Rainbow Bee-eater

Rainbow Bee-eater (Image ID 44818)
CommentI like the interaction in this photo. It brings to mind a couple in a relationship, where one partner is attempting to impress the other and is failing dismally! I also like how the fast shutter speed has frozen the action, and the depth of field has allowed both birds (importantly, their eyes) to be in good focus. The splashes of colour in the plumage draw the eyes to the birds, while the overall green feel is pleasant and relaxing.
