Artist's Description

This inquisitive white-throated bee eater (Merops albicollis) had checked out his surroundings and then eye-balled me to make sure that he approved of the camera and lens. He was so engrossed that he didn’t see a lilac-breasted roller who wanted to be centre stage bearing down on him. He was evicted in a flurry of feathers and the roller got his way.
Photographed in Buffalo Springs, Samburu, Kenya on 13 April 2012

Canon 1DMkII with bee-eater approved Canon 300mm f2.8 IS lens and 1.4 extender.
ISO200 420mm f9 at 1/1000
