Surely one of the prettiest of birds, the Little BeeEater seems more curious than wary as it observes me from its perch about 2 metres from where I sit in my mobile hide [aka car].
It was an extraordinary thrill for me to have such a close encounter with this, normally extremely human-shy, totally wild beauty.
A short series of pictures of birds I collected at New Year break, on my first bird-specific outing. One thing I learned is that wild birds are very difficult subject; an occasional [maybe accidental] success was enough to addict me to this field.
Critical feedback most welcome, as I want to improve.
