Eyes on the Fly

This bee-eater found in Wilpattu National Park, Sri Lanka, never seemed to give up catching the one fly it has its focus on, despite many failed attempts. There were more flies around, but the focus and determination of this bird to get what it started off to get by returning back to where it started inspires me on a daily basis.
