This is a Merops orientalis (probably subspecies muscatensis) which I saw in Oman some years ago. Back then, I had a compact camera, and this photo was taken with a 93mm zoom. Bee-eaters actually eat a variety of insects, not only bees.
This solitary Torgos tracheliotos was soaring high above Wadi Bani Khalid in Oman. Solitary for two reasons: firstly, this endangered species doesn’t live in big groups like other vultures. Secondly, and you may have guessed it, their numbers are in decline because of human intervention.
I met this member of Oenanthe lugentoides a few years ago when living in a small oasis town in Oman.
