This is a very nice capture of this Lilac-breasted roller and well presented.
I like your composition/POV, the colours are stunning, the details are fine, and the lighting/exposure was very well managed. In my opinion, the only nit might be the slight noise that is noticeable in the sky. I have prepared a workshop to address this aspect. I hope you like it.
Well done and TFS.

i am fascinated by the bush birds in africa..so numerous and so brightly coloured...and loquacious...:)
good natural habitat and attitude shot...clear eye..one..and good feather texture..
"This attractive bird is one of the most commonly seen of the Rollers. An inhabitant of dry open brush and wooded areas, it perches prominently on bushes, trees and fence poles. It preys on lizards and invertebrates but is also known to take small birds. Lilac-breasted Rollers are also quite unbothered by people, allowing you to get very close in for a good shot"..:)

Very good bird picture Christian, sharp, well lighted and nicely composed. Very good work, thanks.
Una bonita carraca, aunque la foto tiene quizás un poco de ruido.
