Great in-flight of this Roller. You caught him perfectly. Love the head on position! The face is marvelous - even the eyes. Beautiful colors and fine details. He stands out from the fence very well.

a very good action shot. The lack of sharpness at the wingtips and the very good sharpness at the head introduce an element of dynamics. The perfect split-second! I understand why this is your preferred bird!
Thanks and kind regards,

A very impressive shot, not only for the action but also for the technical quality and for the colourful subject. You have captured it in a great position, showing the wonderful colour of the upper wing-side. Great focus, well chosen DOF. Simply fantastic.
Best greetings & TFS!

Mooie opname van deze hele mooie vogel, eigenlijk onbegrijpelijk dat deze ook mee doet in de vogelshow, ik heb ze gezien in Zuid Afrika. Dat ze dit kunnen aanleren.
En wat je ook schrijft jammer van de achtergrond. Maar ja je kunt niet alles hebben.

Het is je vrij goed gelukt om deze kleurige vogel in vlucht te weten vastleggen,wat niet eenvoudig is daar ze vrij snel zijn,denk dat het op TN niet is toegestaan,maar voor de sport zou je met behulp van photoshop de achtergrond kunnen veranderen,groetjes

Thanks for welcoming me to Trek Nature. I appreciate your visit and the positive critique you left me. I am sure I’ll enjoy every moment and that my knowledge about nature and everything involved will grow daily.
Although this is not your latest posting, I wanted to critique this specific one. On browsing through your portfolio, my eye caught this Lilac Breasted Roller in flight and I immediately thought back to my reaction to the first time I ever saw this bird. I cannot recall my exact words but it was something in the line of “Look at that big beautiful blue butterfly” How was I supposed to know birds can be as gorgeous and colourful as butterflies? Up to today, I am often teased about this, and whenever we go out to a game reserve or bird park and see some of these birds, Loot or the children will refer to it as “Anna’s butterfly.”
I agree that we do have a beautiful country with lovely landscapes and tremendous fauna and flora.
