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.

Rainbow bee-eaters (Merops ornatus) have a diet that consists primarily of flying insects, however, as their name implies, they have a real taste for bees. This species is on a constant lookout for flying insects, and can spot a potential meal up to 45 metres away. Canon 5D MKIII + Sigma 150-600mm DG OS HSM

These are a few Rainbow Bee-eaters that I managed to capture at Anderson gardens
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 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!
