White-Fronted Bee-Eater

by Christo Nel
(Rustenburg)


My father in law and I spent some time at Mankwe, taking the usual photo's of african darters, cormorants, little grebe's and the famous pied kingfisher. Halfway between the gate and the hide is a tree and that is where we found these white fronted bee-eater's. There were two, feasting for a while on dragonflies and bees. The light was a bit harsh, but we got the shots and the experience!
