Little bee eater on reed

The little bee-eater, pictured in the Okavango Delta region, Botswana.  This species was a common sight and would flit from one perch to another as we observed it.   In the event that I missed a shot,  it was often a case of waiting a moment and the bird would return to the same twig or branch a few seconds later.   A long telephoto lens was virtually essential.
