Should be playing for Australia

The Australian team for the upcoming Cricket World Cup was announced today. I was surprised by the complete absence of Rainbowbirds from the squad.

After watching their performance in the past two tests I reckon the team could do with some lessons on catching flying things!


Rainbow Bee-eater hawking for insects, Newstead Cemetery, 11th January 2015.


A successful catch!


… and a glint in the eye.


Superb acrobatics.


Another unlucky insect.
