This Easter Saturday morning found Rainbow Bee-eaters enjoying a feast along the edge of our creek in Malanda. A very nice way to start the day is with a cup of tea, a Canon 7d Mark II and a Tamron 150-600mm zoom lens.
Here is a little triptych of sorts of Rainbow Bee-eaters in flight. It is a sight to behold when they are all feeding. They tend to sit about 10 metres high in the trees and swoop out into the air nearby to grab an insect in flight. They must have incredible eye sight and they certainly have spectacular aerobatic ability and speed. Just another of the many spectacular bird species that inhabit or visit the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland.
