A pair of Swallow-tailed bee-eaters (Merops hirundineus) share a moment. Love is in the air… notice the heart that is formed by the curves of the backs and beaks of the birds.

    Love this one…Great shot of the birds with the Valentine heart as a bonus. Great composition. Did you notice the heart as you were shooting or did it come as happy surprise when you were on the computer?

  • Thanks so much! A happy surprise it was!
