title from a song by David Gilmour
The beautiful bird here has a poetic name in Persian language :
" Sabz Ghabaa " that has a mean like " Green Cassock " or " Green Mantelet " or " Green Toga" ! a bit difficult for me to find and say its poetic sound with its mean !
But I found english name of the bird :
The Blue-tailed Bee-eater has an attractive flying stile !
I captured her in south of Iran,in Kish Island,where is located 18 kilometres off the southern Iranian coasts in Persian Gulf.
According to the national geographical divisions,Kish is in the domain of the Lengeh District,Hormuzgan Province,but is run independently by the Kish Free Zone Organization (KFZO).

A fantastic upward pov on the bee eater & caught with its dinner, no less! Wonderful colour & good use of a shallow dof. Tfs!

Hi Mohammad. What a nice, special bird. Good focus and sharpness on the bird. We can see very clearly how he/she is going to swallow down lunch.

I'm glad that saw your another so missed post. Skillful match between green body of her with green leafs of tree while using splendid shallow focus control. Clarity and sharpness are just perfect in natural color as same every time. Congratulations. Hope you can share more photos soon, take care.
