Blue-tailed Bee-eaters

After waiting for quite a bit, these birds arrived one by one. I was thrilled when three were perched, never expecting a fourth one to appear. I really liked this moment where it almost looks like the fourth bird is pondering as to where to land.

Equipment used:
Nikon D3S
Nikkor 600mm F4 VR
Gitzo 1325 tripod
Gitzo GH5380SQR ball head
