Surrounded by Bee Eaters

When we decided to move to the Algarve I kept saying that I hoped to see and photograph one of the most stunning birds on the planet, the European Bee Eater.

You can imagine how chuffed I am to wake up a few days ago to find the local area heavily populated by returning Bee Eaters. They are everywhere! This morning, four of them were feeding right here at the house.

So I grabbed the camera for some quick “record” shots and got this pair with one who had caught a Bumblebee. Midday sun in the Algarve is not really too kind for photography as it’s so strong, so I’m looking forward to getting some early morning/late afternoon shots over the next few weeks.
