European bee eater

European bee eater

Traveled from Lahore to Ghakuch, Gilgit Baltistan.
About 935 km (one side) which took like 14 hours drive alone, was a bit difficult for me. Just to see the ultimate, beautiful colors of this bird with naked eye, where they were breeding.
This beauty was impossible to capture without the help of one of our most senior Nature, Wildlife lover, Mr. Arif Ameen from Pakistan.
He guided and helped me alot to capture it.
I would like to pay billions of thanks to him.

Left side on background there is a blur black spot which is European bee eater nest in mud. They were extremely shy than other bee eaters.
A lifer for me.
