We see a lot of Bee-eater images in this gallery, but not many in flight like this beauty! The dynamic flight position is top-notch, and the color is gorgeous. Beautifully done, Diana!

A beautiful flight image of this wonderful species, Diana but I think you could increase the saturation a touch to bring out the gorgeous colour they are so famous for. The ones I saw in Zambia were certainly a richer carmine/red and it would really give this lovely image the boost it deserves, IMO. Just my 2 cents worth.

Thanks Carol! I was able to increase the saturation and I think it does enhance the image!!
