Wow! That is fabulously sharp! I have shots of a different species of Bee Eater, but they're not nearly as sharp as that. Did you use a tripod?

Sharp, contrasty, rich colors, the birds really stand out against the beautiful smooth background blur, great work :-)

These two pictures of the green woodpecker (Picus viridis) are again made with two different lens. The first was shot with PENTAX 300mm/F4 SDM, and the second photo with Tokina 400mm/F5.6 SD MF.
