Photographer's Note

This is a bee-eater captured on the shore of the Baringo lake during a early boat ride. The Baringo lake is an amazingly wealthy place in bird ressources. This is the northernmost lake in the Rift valley and the second biggest one after the Nakuru and one of the only one made of freshwater.

This is also a place where one can meet one of the three kinds of Massai : the fishermen ones. One also can meet hippos and crocodiles. Hippos are impressive, especially at night when they come along the shore to eat noisily.

Bee-eater eats flying insects like bees and wasps. They especially love the honey bees. Funnily, they will ignore any flying insect once landed on the ground.
