‘Bee’ry Lucky Day!

The Bee-eaters are known of feeding on stinging insects such as bees, wasps, hornets, ants, etc and that’s how they got their name.

I was at Ubin last Saturday and saw this very special moment. Confrontation between bees and a Blue-throated Bee-eater! The bees realized he got himself a big trouble when flying cross the Bee-eater path. Guess what, the Bee-eater give it a miss! … What a lucky day for this bee!
The Blue-throated Bee-eater (Merops viridis) just stare at the bee and give it a miss and go for dragonfly instead.
