He is extremely handsome, Louis, and your shot is gorgeous.
Louis: Thank you Ray, he worked with me. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.
Definitely the center of attraction, Louis! What a sweet-pie.
Louis: Absolutely, Ginnie - constantly chattering with a nearby companion. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.

What a glorious sight Louis. We have a handful of Bee Eaters resident in the UK, believe it or not
Louis: Thank you Chris. One bee-eater that one find here is the European bee-eater - so I guess that will be one that we share. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.

White- fronted- and red-necked and orange-bodied ... a very colourful bird- wonderful!
Louis: Zeker weten en bedankt Philine. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.
A fine picture of a lovely bird Louis
Louis: Thank you Bill. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.
I have fallen in love with this gorgeous bird Louis.
Louis: They're a joy to watch, during their forays, gutteridge. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.

What a wonderful light and sight and what a wonderful bird. Love the long beak. It looks like all the colours are from the rainbow...
Louis: Thank you Astrid. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.
Bravo, il est magnifique avec toutes ces couleurs.
Louis: Merci beaucoup, Martine. Ce sera ma dernière affectation jusqu'à ce que je suis de retour du Portugal.
The morning light is palpable here and the perfect background in your beautiful shot.
Louis: Thank you Mary. I have previously posted a picture of the white-breasted bee-eater, but the qualities that you describe, brought me to post this one. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.
What a lovely looking bird and so well phtographed.
Louis: Thank you sir. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.
Woo - lovely - I've seen the bee-eaters we get in Europe, in Greece, but never anything like this!
Louis: Thank you, Tom. The European bee-eater is one that we share with Europe and is quite a looker itself. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal. Oh yes, I am keeping your Portugal shots in mind and have some of them marked down for a visit.
the curve of the beak is appealing to me, Louis. you have a fine shot of this colourful bird.
Louis: Thank you Ayush. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.
Almost a perfect rainbow...great shot...
Louis: Thank you Larry. This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.
beautiful colours of his plumage... i'm sure that he flies fast to be catching bees Louis....petersmile
Louis: Fast and acrobatic, peter. The tail spreads to a delta that helps with mid-air changes of direction, This will be my last posting until I'm back from Portugal.
I'm always struck with how beautiful these are! Wonderful photo of him, Louis!
Your eyes still doing OK?
