Little Bee Eater with a moth
Photographer: Bill Klipp
Location: Ruckomechi Camp Zimbabwe
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.
