Lilac Breasted Roller

The lilac breasted roller is one of my favourite South African birds – it has such a wide variety of colours in its feathers.  While I saw quite a few on my trip, usually it was while we were driving and they were flying away – not the best opportunity for capturing a photo.  Here though, I lucked out.  A bright sunny day really brings out the feather colours, but the flat white sky also serves as a good backdrop.

    1. Yes, Mom and Dad loved the prints 🙂 I used this roller photo for my Mom’s birthday card as well. The holidays were lovely, great food and family time – exactly as they were meant to be. Have a lovely day Christy.
