Another one I've not posted before, a Lilac breasted Roller, from Lower Zambezi, Zambia.

The ragged perch is the result of elephants ripping the branches off to eat!

Gorgeous image, Carol. Love the vivid color on the bird which is set off beautifully by the clean background. Excellent work.

Holy Mackerel, the colors are amazing. Did someone painted the bird with Crayons ? :-).

Very nice Carol! Love these guys and you sure did him justice with beautiful colors and details captured. A lifer for me, so I'm a bit jealous. Well done
