Little Bee-eater

The Little Bee-eater is a bright, energetic, bundle of energy and is common throughout Tanzania.

This one has its sights set on a bee that wandered a bit too close for its own safety.

The bee never had a chance.

This guy was perched near the hippo pool at Lake Manyara National Park. Swarms of insects kept him busy.

I love that spectacular birds can be commonplace birds. I often take a second look at the my local birds and find them equally spectacular although my amazement is easily dulled by familiarity. Nevermore!
