Blue-tailed bee-eater flying with prey in twilight hour

Blue-tailed bee-eaters mostly live in flocks. Although throughout the day they remain busy catching their preys, in late afternoon this activity increases. This image, taken in golden light in late afternoon. The shining bokeh in the background is created due to light reflecting in water and sand.
