Lilac breasted roller, Kruger NP

There was a lion sighting about 20m ahead of me. All that could be seen of the sleeping cat was two ears, a patch of white belly and a tuft of tail. This beautiful bird, on the other hand, was sitting in good light, against a clear sky.

As I was shooting it, a couple of cars came by and asked me what I could see. I pointed out the bird. They looked at me as if I was crazy.

"There are lions ahead, you know"

Yes, I did know. But to me, this was a far more entertaining subject than a sleeping, partially obscured cat.
