Rainbow Bee Eater (Merops ornatus), north of Broken Hill, NSW. They are social birds believed to mate for life, and enjoy eating most flying insects, but especially love bees. #ausgeo#aussiewildlife#naturephotography#photography#wildlifephotography#birdwatching#birding#birdsofaustralia#discovernsw#rainbowbeeeater#meropsornatus#wheresthesnakesat#outbacktravel#discovernsw#roadtrip#birds#prettybird

Resting between sallies, Rainbow Bee-eater (Merops ornatus). Colourful, active and good to watch. They perch and wait then soar up and around catching insects before returning to the perch again. This is a male, signified by the long thin streamer from his tail feathers. A resident of northern areas of Australia and a summer visitor to the south.

These are a few Rainbow Bee-eaters that I managed to capture at Anderson gardens this weekend. Rainbow bee-eaters eat insects, mainly catching bees and wasps, as well as dragonflies, beetles, butterflies and moths. They catch flying insects on the wing and carry them back to a perch to beat them against it before swallowing them. Bees and wasps are rubbed against the perch to remove the stings and venom glands. #rainbow#rainbowbeeeater#meropsornatus#meropidae#nature#naturephotography#outdoors#thegreatoutdoors#bird#birds#birdsofaustralia#australianbirds#birdwatching#birdwatchingaustralia#birdphotography#wild#wildlife#wildlifephotography#outdoorphotography#bath#butterfly#pond#park#andersongardens#duck#lilypads#reflection#your_best_birds#australiagram

A sketch of the Rainbow Bee-eator. For those playing at home, Iโ€™m continuing from yesterday's field sketch but now thinking about feather placement and tonal values :). Tomorrow I'm thinking about fluffing him up to get a better understanding of his feathers... #observationaldrawing#rainbowbeeeater#birdillustration#wildlifeillustration#artinprogress#naturalhistoryart#naturalhistoryillustration#natureillustration#birdillustration#birdsofaustralia#sketches#sketching#sketchbook#ayeeshas100days#day14#drawingforenjoyment#naturalworldillustration#naturelover#meropsornatus#mylittlefriend

Introducing the first of many sketches of the Rainbow Bee-eater, Merops ornatus! I have a lovely commission thatโ€™s taken me forever to do (literally had to wait till my local Bee-eaters came of age) and now into the thick of it. I have a friend who loves my beginning sketches and says they are helpful when she goes out sketching herself- so I hope this helps! #naturalhistoryillustration#naturalhistoryartist#naturalhistoryart#ayeeshas100days#day13#wildlifeillustration#wildlifeart#sketching#sketches#artinprogress#nature#natureillustration#birdillustration#birdart#australianbirds#rainbowbeeeater#meropsornatus#sketchbook#beginnings#observationaldrawing

Mr whippy in flight An Eastern Whipbird flying across a bush track at full speed. A bird that is often heard a lot more than it is seen and usually in very thick cover when you do see them. Their call sounds like a loud crack of a whip. I was very happy to get a few frames of this one and a juvenile soon after it as it flew from heavy cover to heavy cover in no more than a second.

A stunning Rainbow Bee Eater (Merops ornatus) escaping the mid-day heat in this metal structure. It was a shock to see this beautiful bird while following a Sand Monitor passing directly underneath it. They feed on insects, favouring bees and wasps. Once they have captured an insect, they take it to a tree and beat the insect against the perch before consumption. Awesome to see a wild one!

How gorgeous are these guys!? Rainbow Bee-Eaters (Merops ornatus) are a small, migrating bird species, common throughout their range. They are actually a ground nesting species, and the female will dig her burrow while the male brings her food. The only bee eater species found in Australia, they spend summer in the southern half of Aus in open woodlands, beaches, cliffs, forests and mangroves, and in winter they migrate to northern Aus and will also go to New Guinea and Indonesia. Their favourite food is, you guessed it, bees! They can eat up to hundreds of bees a day, but will also take pretty much any flying insect. They have adapted to become immune to the venom of bees and wasps, but will rub the stinger off into a branch before eating it anyway. An extremely colourful and pretty species, and my favourite small bird! #birdwatching#birding#birder#birdphotography#canonphotography#wildlifephotography#superzoom#badphotos#shitpics#outbackbird#smallbird#passerine#meropidae#birdy#prettybirdy#colourfullbird#beautifulbirds#ilovebirds#cutebird#ausgeo#discovernsw#exploreaus#beeeater#rainbowbeeeater#burrowingbird#fastbirdsarehardtophotograph#merops#meropsornatus

Rainbow bee-eater (Merops ornatus) Australias only native bee-eater and a widespread nomad of central Aus. Bee-eaters are aerial hunters and specialise in bees and wasps banging and butchering their prey on a perch to remove any stingers before swallowing.
