Wild birds, Nature and Art. The colorful and beautiful Rainbow Bee-eaters are found throughout mainland Australia, New Guinea and, rarely, the Salomon islands. Not present in Tasmania (BirdLife International). Thomas Lovejoy, eminent conservation biologist, has said: "Basically, if you save the variety of birds on this planet, you will save the variety of Life, at least on land. So, they are great indicators of the overall health of the environment." I like to draw BIRDS!... with watercolor pencils, natural pigments and rainwater.

Driving out of the Big Desert, we stopped on the side of the road to photograph a stumpy-tail when I heard an odd bird call that I didn’t recognise. Looked up and this stunner was sitting on the fence, a Rainbow Bee-eater!! #rainbowbeeeater#meropsornatus#bird#australianbirds#canon80d#bigdesertstateforest#australianfauna

Rainbow Bee-eater ———————————————————————— After getting some helpful hints from @servalpaul as to where to find these guys, I couldn’t wait to get out and spot one for myself. So with a couple hours spare between work shifts I made the drive down to the #youyangs walked to the spot and to my amazement not only did I find one but the area seems to be a secret hideout for these colourful little birds ———————————————————————— Other birds to tick off the list are Pallid Cuckoo, Jacky Winter and Striated Pardalote ———————————————————————— #rainbowbeeeater#youyangsregionalpark#birdwatching#migratorybirds#meropsornatus

Love their black eye stripe with blue stripe below and the two fine tail streamers😍 Just like their name suggest, they catch flying insect by slim curved bill and carry them back to a perch to remove the stings and venom gland🐝 They are summer migrant, can be found by the unique cricket-liked and sandy soils. . 📷Canon EOS 80D | EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens . #Meropsornatus#rainbowbeeeater#beeeater#insectivorous#birding#wildlifephotography#native#wildlifeofaustralia#perth#westernaustralia

The best thing about the bike track at Camden... pretty Rainbow Bee-eaters. Raptors are my thing but I am enjoying photographing these birds because they are so colourful and best of all I get to sit and watch them on the peaceful bank of the Nepean River #escape#peace#birds#rainbowbeeeater#meropsornatus#nikond500#nikon200500

As a photographer, sometimes you can get everything just right except for one little thing and it's all it takes to make you not fully satisfied with a shot. This is one of those moments... everything was just right, except my focus on the bird was just a bit off... it's a curse for artists to want perfection but also what drives us to be better.

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

Introducing the first of many sketches of the Rainbow Bee-eater, Merops ornatus! I have a lovely commission that’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
