little bee eater

l was photographing a group of lion that day. After couple of hours shooting we decided to go back to the camp. On the way back to the camp l saw this little bee eater, it was flying arround this nice naked branch,it was flying to the different places,trees, bushes, making brief, zig-zag flights to catch an insect or bees, than return to the same branch and consume the meal. The bird was extremely fast and was not staying on the branch long. The sun was almost setting, l had my position behind the branch and started waiting for the bird perch there. finally, this it came to the branch one more time and gave me enough time for couple of shots with the sunset.
