“These Chestnut-headed Bee-eater (Merops leschenaulti leschenaultia) have been breeding near our home and the juveniles are out. Saw many episodes of feeding, especially bees (lots at our home) and tried very hard to ‘catch’ the actual event on still photography but happens very fast. In the end did some hand held videos and the exported stills… Also still of the bees in juvenile’s beak (left). Prey are branch swiped 4-5 times before being offered.”
