Bee Eater

Watercolor on cradled board - 6” x 6”

They are brightly colored, gregarious, and flamboyant. They are fast and fierce as a missile when it comes to securing a meal. Aptly named, these birds fearlessly pluck bees (and other flying insects) out of the air with their strong, downward curved beak, smack the victim’s head on a branch to stun it, remove the stinger and flush out the toxins, and then it’s dinner time!
