Subject: Rainbow Bee-eater (Merops ornatus)
Location: Burrum Coast National Park, Queensland
Date: October 2013
As the name suggests, these stunning birds are insect eaters - they dart and wheel through the air to catch flying insects in their beaks.
They take their insects back to a perch to beat 'em and eat 'em... but before eating bees and wasps they give them a good rub to remove the stings and venom glands. Beautiful AND smart!
