Rainbow bee-eater, Wimmera region, Victoria, Australia

My first view of one of these colourful birds - with a grasshopper for a meal. Is a bit of a crop, but happy enough.

A very nice image, Andrew. All the colours are rich, and a photo of a bird with an insect, always adds a little extra as well.
