True love

A couple of bee-eater (Merops apiaster) in the courtship phase in early spring. Newcomers winter in the south, the procession to get ready for the new generation begins late summer. The male repeatedly provides food for the female to accept mate ... Hehehe ... how hard it is to get a girl ;-)
