We love these two lovely bee-eaters sitting in wonderful symmetry on a wire in Kenya's Samburu National Park. Photographer Astrid Hinderks thinks they might be blue-tailed bee-eaters. Given the markings on the face and crown, they could also be white-throated bee-eaters, Merops albicollis – also known as the black-crowned bee-eater or the eastern white-throated bee-eater – which are known to inhabit Samburu National Reserve as well. Whatever kind of bee-eater they may be, they are beautiful!
