Description

This Little Bee Eater was dining on its eponymous prey as the sun was setting on a beautiful November day in the Ruaha National Park in Tanzania. Bee eaters repeatedly toss the bees they catch to dislodge the stinger. Once the sting is gone, down the hatch! They make an obliging photo subject. If you don't catch the image on the first try, you may get a second chance. I took the image with a Canon EOS 7D Mark II with an EF100 - 400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens with 1.4X III teleconverter. The exposure settings were 1/640 sec, f/8.0, ISO 3200, 470 mm.
