Green Bee-eater

Not a new tick for me, having seen this species in India in 2009, but an opportunity to do a far better job with the camera as my skills back then were quite pitiful. We chanced upon a group of four birds along a small creek at Fujairah, and whilst they never perched at head height and so I was always pointing up, I managed some fairly nice ones with nice clean backgrounds. Green Bee-eater seems common throughout the UAE, and would be a target bird for my next trip as we did not spend anywhere near enough time with them. Along with Indian Rollers, a colourful highlight of the trip, you can't beat a bit of colour!
