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.
