Category: Bee eaters

A colony of red throated bee eaters creates numerous nest cavities in clay cliffs along the Nile.

With so many beautiful birds in Uganda, its impossible to pick a favourite but these red throated bee eaters are high up on my list. So colourful, with remarkable flying abilities, they snatch fast flying insects (including but not limited to bees) out of mid air in a blink of an eye. Trying to capture these birds in flight was extremely difficult.
