Artist's description:

Rainbow Bee-Eater is a spectacular bird and is often found in many lightly timbered
parts of mainland Australia. In this work I have focused on capturing its green, blue, chestnut and yellow plumage, slim build, slender curved bill and distinctive streamers that extend from the and of its tail. It is simply beautiful and has an energetic appearance ie they often perch on fence-posts or overhead wires, then launch after flying insects, flying swiftly, sometimes with rapid twists and turns, before snapping the insect in its bill, and returning to the perch to eat it. (The Rainbow Bee-eater may resemble some kingfishers, however these are plumper, with strong straight beaks, and never catch prey in flight.) I hope you like my work.
