Little Bee Eater with a moth
Photographer: Bill Klipp
Location: Ruckomechi Camp Zimbabwe
Story: 
This Little Bee Eater would land on this same branch and fly off periodically trying to catch an insect. Each time he would land back in the same place. I locked my focus down on the branch and waited for him to fly back. My patience was rewarded when he returned with a moth and began to toss it around before swallowing it.
