White-Fronted Bee-eater, Johan Taljaard, Bronkhorstspruit, Gauteng, South Africa.

The white-fronted bee-eater (Merops bullockoides) is widely distributed in sub-equatorial Africa. They have a distinctive white forehead, a square tail and a bright red patch on their throat. They nest in small colonies, digging holes in cliffs or earthen banks but can usually be seen in low trees waiting for passing insects from which they hunt either by making quick hawking flights or gliding down before hovering briefly to catch insects. Pictures  taken at Sand Pits, Bronkhorspruit, Gauteng.
