rainbow bee-eaters

Rainbow bee-eaters Merops ornatus IMG 9010 - The common name of these birds aptly describes their vivid colouring, but the term 'bee-eater' is a little deceptive, for although they eat bees that they capture in flight, other insects make up a greater proportion of their diet. The bird with the long tail plume is a male, while the other is his female mate.
