Some amazing photos here, Still Country Photo! I never realized how hairy bees were, but I can count the hairs on your extremely detailed pictures! Where were these photos taken?

Sure PortMoresby, the two cameras I use are a Pentax K10D dSLR with a Pentax DA 55-300 mm f4-5.8 lens and the other is a Panasonic Lumix TS2.

Bee-eaters are amazing birds. I've never seen more than one or two around, so it must be quite a treat to be at the edge of a migration of them! And they fly so quickly -- amazed you were able to get that last photo framed as well as you did. Thanks for sharing these.

    Does this picture make anyone else want to gently reach out with a finger and give him a little pet?  I wanted to but a childhood memory of being stung on the end of my index finger helped me to resist the temptation.    I...
