Title European Bee-eaters
Description This photo was taken in Northern Italy, during the last spring. Bee-eaters just came from their wintering sites in Africa, after their annual migration, and started making nests in the sandy slope of the river close to my town. In this period, preceding the coupling, these interactions between males are common and give the opportunity to observe these beautiful birds in interesting behaviors.

Great shot - interesting subjects. Love the colors, the bokeh and the unusual wing displayed.

This photo is so good that it should belong in a National Geography issue. Or a really decent Pentax brochure.
