Little Green Bee-eater (Merops orientalis), Eilat, Israel by Daniel J. Field

  • natgeo Video by @bertiegregory. A little green bee-eater showing where bee-eaters get their name. Having said that, if you look really closely at the prey in this shot you’ll see it only has one set of wings meaning it is in fact a fly. Bees have two sets of wings. Bee-eaters aren’t actually limited to catching bees at all, they take a wide range of other flying insects including wasps, flies and dragonflies. Shot for @natgeo, @natgeowildand @stevewinterphoto.
