Little Green Bee-eater

Photographed these Little Green Bee-eaters at Goa's Anjuna Beach. In the first photograph the bird snaps a flying insect from midair. Just as the name suggests, bee-eaters predominantly eat insects,which are caught in the air by sorties from an open perch. Before eating its meal, a bee-eater removes the sting by repeatedly hitting the insect on a hard surface.
This bird has also got a ability to looks at things in others point of view, hence while building nests it chooses a place, after deciding how a predator will look at it. Its never too much for a bird!
