Great capture of this Little Bee-Eater, Michael. You go to the Sabi Sands Conservancy a lot? You live in the States, don’t you?

Behind The Lens

Location
Lion Sands Reserve, Sabi Sands, South Africa
Time
Shot taken at 4PM on a bright sunny day
Lighting
Lighting was perfect
Equipment
Canon 7D and a Canon 400 DO with 1.4 extender. Shot was hand held
Inspiration
Bee eaters are beautiful and delightful to watch. This guy sat just long enough for me to get a shot before he took off in search of insects
Editing
The shot was taken in raw, so basic post processing of contrast and sharpening.
In my camera bag
Canon 7D and Canon 1D IV with Canon 400 DO, Canon 70-200 2.8L, Canon 100-400L and Canon 70-300L along with a flash and accessories.
Feedback
With birds be patient, be lucky. Keep taking as many shots as you can until you finally get the money shot !
