I love photography and especially bird photography which is one of the most challenging and beautiful of subjects. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I had taking them.
Awesome photo, fantastic capture :-) wonderful bird, so beautiful :-)
Thanks Kymie… but I have to thank my model for being so beautiful.

Outstanding capture Phillip.May I ask what camera and lens are you using to take these magnificent captures.?
Thanks Noelene.. easy to take good shots of beautiful creatures. I used a Canon 20d with Sigma 170-500mm on a monopod and well hidden in the bushes. These guys are so shy that if they see you coming you’ve got little hope of getting close.
You are such a tease. What a beautiful shot
Thanks Moorey.. this is one I took about a week ago and added for a challenge on ‘fluffed up’ in I love Birds. Beautiful creatures… I can see why they are your favourite.
What a wonderful image!
Many thanks juellie… they are beautiful creatures.
Gorgeous photography Phillip! Love the bright colours of Mr Fluffed Up against the background! :)
Thanks Vicki… they are a beautiful bird and this one turned out pretty good (even if I say so myself). Glad you like it.
Thanks Ryan.. nothing nicer than to get amongst these beautiful creatures and get some captures.
they are a beauty for sure… thanks Robert.
Gorgeous shot of this wonderful little bird!
Thanks Pamela… it is a sight to behold.
Many thanks Trevor.
I’m a little envious… I see rainbow bee-eaters from my back yard quite regularly. Although I’ve taken so many shots I’m yet to capture one that is anywhere near what you have got here. Well done.
Thank you Coreena, I appreciate your kind comment. Here the Bee-Eater wasn’t too sure what I was, it could hear the shutter going at 5 frames per second and the morning light was right for this pic… a bit of luck too I think.
