Bee attack

As with many other nice action shots, things in the field happen so quickly that you don't fully realize what you've seen until later when you look at the photos. This insect was there for only a second and the Rosella wasn't happy. It's interesting that later in the sequence the bee just disappears, but there aren't any signs of whether the Rosella swallowed it or it just flew away. I'm afraid, that this will remain a mystery forever...
