Wings of fire

I found a colony of Blue tailed bee eaters couple of years ago in a riverbank . It is always beautiful to get the bird in backlight as the colour of the wings looks complete different. That evening, the light was extremely good ..the birds sometimes flew very close to the shallow water body besides the river while they were hunting bees from the nearby field… with a high shutter speed I was able to capture this shot where the reflection of evening light creates a magical effect.
