Chestnut-Headed Bee-Eater

It was almost dark when I took these photographs of the Chestnut-Headed Bee-Eater; I like the limited light present here since the colours just came in natural saturation and fresh. This Bee-Eater was a joy to watch on its perch, it just kept coming back after it caught its meal. Straightforward jpeg and absent enhancements.

Ali Bernie Buga-y has been a teacher in arts and music to different international schools in Thailand for nine years until he decided to enjoy the full time lifestyle of being a visual artist. Together with his family, he travels to different national parks in Thailand to experience true encounters in nature and the wildlife. His love for the birds and animals is the driving force that motivates him to photograph and paint them as seen in the wild. The joys of birding can only be shared through visual representations of these lovely feathered creatures carefully studied and observed in their natural habitat. As a graduate of Theology, he perfectly understands that somehow man should find ways to emerge himself to an edenic experience here on earth; and through these physical experiences man may again find spirituality beholding nature. Complicated as it may seem, Bernie finds it refreshing to the mind and soul as nature reveals itself when he observes and study them carefully through photography.
