Lilac-breasted roller, Kruger NPi

As I mention in the article, I had a very productive time with lions on this trip. So much so that when I saw a sleeping lion in the distance on one side, and this roller on the other, I decided to shoot the roller.

A couple of vans left their hard-won position in the queue that was jostling to see the lions, and came over to see what I was shooting. The disappointment in their faces was obvious when I pointed out my subject - and when they saw that their places had been taken by other cars, I got quite a few dirty looks.

Anyway, it was somewhat cloudy that day, which let me get this colorful shot of the bird at mid-day, without any harsh shadows.
