I can sing a rainbow - European Bee-eaters by Jamie-MacArthur I can sing a rainbow - European Bee-eaters by Jamie-MacArthur
Actually I can't sing very well at all unless in the shower after a couple of glasses of wine ;-)

I usually like clear backgrounds but I had no choice here. The thing is I nearly missed them as they blended in so well ;-)

:lmao: :applaud:

Great shot! Such colorful birds!
I actually like the colorful background, seeing as it corresponds/or goes with colors on the birds

Aww, they are so cute - and very beautiful, the green :love: I quite like the background, especially the vagueness of the red and purple flowers, a nice contrast (or are they complimentary ?) with the yellow and green of the birds :D

Gorgeous! I think the blurred background works very well here. The focus is on the birds and the blurred background has alot of colours that blend in well with the bee-eaters, so it turns into something really stunning and calming to look at. :thumbsup:
