Hello Gerard,

what an nice picture from this coloured bird.
Good frontal pov, sharpness and details.
Fine colours.


Nice one Gerard. The Lilac-Breasted Roller is well known in the Etosha Reserve in Namibia. Also lots of them in the Kruger Park in SA.

Well captured.

Bonjour M Gerard,

Bravo pour cette belle photo, l'oiseau est superbe et le focus est très bien réalisé. Félicitation et bonne journée à vous.


What an amnazing thing for me to view this species in the wild. We have two of them here in Calgary in our Zoo; they are not as colourful.
Loved this one as it is quite DETAILED.
Mario from COLD COLD Calgary with greetings.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hello Gerard,
what a view of this small and colourful bird. nicely shot and nicely composed.
I like its agiler head. The branches give a lively graphical composition.
