This photo was taken on our visit to Etosha National Park in Namibia near the Namutoni Camp. The Lilac-Breasted Roller (coracais caudatus) has magnificent colours but a dreadful call.

    Lovely to see my favourite bird again :-) Geat shot, I know how difficult they are to photograph!

    It is an amazingly colourful bird – my wife will be loading a photo she took of a Lilac-breasted in Kruger NP when she gets a chance. Thank you for your comment.

    Thanks to the group for their support – it always good to get Olitto comments too. Would like to visit Africa again but unfortunately it won’t be soon. Still processing shots and will continue to enjoy.
