+ Comments Rainbow Bee-eater at Mutitjulu Waterhole - 2009-10-06
This is by far my best shot ever of a bird, and it took quite a while to get. After the Rainbow Bee-eater found an insect to eat I pretty much just held the shutter down to catch the whole sequence (6fps) and this is the best photo from the sequence. It's taken at the Mutitjulu Waterhole at Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Australia. The Mutitjulu Waterhole at Uluru is the most reliable waterhole around Uluru and a great deal of the wildlife depends on it to survive.
