  1. Love your pictures,
    How did you get the shot of the Ranibow Bee Eater snapping the insect? I look forward to seeing more of your pictures.

    EDITOR: luck, a good quality camera lense and patience

  2. That’s a lovely photo. Beautiful birds – are they pretty rare? Hope to go birding in Australia some year soon. Can I ask, what level of optical zoom was used?

    EDITOR: They’re more common in Northern and Central Australia. Optical zoom was 12x
