Kingfishers and Bee-eaters

Morning trip to Suan Rot Fai on Valentine's Day gave great views of Blue-tailed Bee-eaters hawking insects in the early morning sun. This shot taken with 300mm lens, without teleconverter. I may try to go back early on another morning to dedicate some time to trying to get better shots.

Also this Black-capped Kingfisher hung around long enough to get a few images - not great, but think I need to use a hide to have any real chance of getting good quality images.

Other birds seen included one female Black-naped Monarch, two Taiga Flycatchers and one Open-billed Stork (a patch tick) circling overhead.
