Beautiful lilac-breasted rollers (Coracias caudatus) are one of my most favourite of the African birds. This was was perched in a dead thorn tree at Lake Ndutu, Serengeti, Tanzania.

Fabulous capture, super detail!
Marvelous. Somehow its spiky feathers seem in keeping with the spiky branches.
You did a wonderful job capturing the details of this Lilac-breasted roller.
Excellent shot. Love the colors of the feathers. Very pretty.
Great shot, pretty bird!
This roller is a beauty, and lucky he was in a thorn tree, no leaves to hide him.
