Bee-eaters

Hi,

Sharing some photos taken during a photo tour to Bulgaria back in May/June. This was my second visit to this nice country, this time the tour had focus on bee-eaters and rollers. Rollers will be shared in separate post.

These are with the E-M1 M2, 300 F/4 and some with the 40-150/2.8

Thanks for looking
Tord

Hi Tord, it's been a while but well worth the wait. This set has proved to be stunning. Looking forward to the next issue.

Re: Bee-eaters

Thanks for the nice feedback. Took quite some preparations to find the right spots close enough to the colonies. Used portable hide and camo net. And yes it's an admiral.
