Waiting for Lift-off!

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"!
