Blue-throated Bee-Eater (Merops viridis): At last

Ron (a.k.a Ron Pudin) had a minor car accident just the other day. I have to agree with him, If hadn't been a Toyota the damage could have been much worse! According to him, the car which stuck him came much worst than his, but the driver sustained no serious injury,thankfully. So too, Ron. Thank god he was driving alone that morning.
Today, we went for a famed trip with one of the great bird-guide ever-His wife Hazel! (Talk about how contagious Avian-flu really is!). It was only a few hours trip. But a very exciting and fruitful one! She really gave us what she said she can, the beautiful Blue-throated Bee-Eater (Merops viridis)! I finished the space of my 2G CF memory card at our first stop. Equivalent to 150 shots in less than 20 minutes. How about that?
1. Toyota Nadia: The wreck

Despite the bad impact, the Toyota still runs as usual.

2. Ron Pudin in Action

Catch what took his attention at his flickr. Notice the camo pants and Lowepro toploading camera bag? Nice...huh?

3. Blue-throated Bee-eater (Merops viridis)

I travelled from coast to coast and never came close to capture a decent shot of this wonderful, wonderful bird. This one came flying to us...Thanks Hazel! What's next?
