    Absolutely terrific, bold beautiful colours and idyllic composition. Was this in the wild or was it a set up, either way it is amazing.

    The frame is nicely balanced all around. Nice pose on both birds. Great background and perch.

    Agree with all that has been said.
    The symmetry, perch, dreamy background and of course the pair of beautiful Bee-eaters has created a wonderful image.
