Been an exceptionally sunny and bright day, such that the moment you step out of your house for work, you feel the wings in your shoes for the sky is the bluest of blue and fluffy cotton ball clouds float languidly around.
And then, I caught sight of the bee eater for the first time properly this season, having heard its trill trill for quite sometime now. It did look at me for a brief moment, as you can see in the third picture, and am kinda grateful to it for letting me take these pics

Amazing, how beautiful these birds are, even though the thought that probably consumes them entirely is all about big, fat insects and I wonder why their eyes should be red, like the eyes of raptor birds. Once again, probably an adaptation to scare the insects into frozen submission. Notice the extended tail feathers from mid section. Must give them lift for those scoops and dives!
