Rewarding moments with Rainbow Bee-eaters

Rewarding short session with Rainbow Bee-eaters (Merops ornatus) at Mungalla Station this morning.


Birds using dead cottonwood branch to sight and launch at flying prey.


Ever-moving bash and thrash after successful strikes made it hard to get sharp shots.


And the slowish frame rate of the 5D3 and the luck of shutter activation combined to frustrate hopes of a perfect action picture.
