The photographer: Chris Smith of Sacramento
Behind the lens: We were visiting Victoria Falls Safari Lodge in Zimbabwe last spring. I woke up with the sun and walked down to the patio that overlooks the watering hole, hoping to photograph some wildlife. Not much was moving yet, but I saw these little bee-eaters darting around. It was a cool morning, and they were huddled up for warmth. As one zipped in, another would squeeze over or fly off. It only lasted for a few minutes before they all darted away in various directions. A lovely sight to start the day.
