Lilac-breasted Roller in Flight
One of my seriously needed birds showed up for us in a
big way in Tanzania, during our latest visit in
October 2011. This is one of the most beautiful
birds in the world, with spectacular colours.
We had several perched in short trees along the road
while moving throughout Tarangire National Park.
Perched shots were fun, but the flight shot was the
frame I was looking for! Unfortunately my best
shot was this one with the wings clipped, so I made
something out of nothing here!
As they say, "next time"!
