Lilac breasted roller

Kenya has many beautiful and unusual birds. We were lucky to get off some good shots on this beautiful guy, the lilac breasted roller.
Really nice shot. How kind of him to pose like that for you! FAV

@wordpixman @888rachel thank you both for such a quick and lovely response. I couldn't stop shooting these guys at every opportunity but usually they disappeared to fast for a shot.

@pusspup @888rachel I also have this lens and love it but thought it would be too big to take on holiday. I guess if you are there just for photography then it's a must to take.

@bella_ss @888rachel take along some muscle to carry it! But this was a good holiday for it as we were almost entirely in vehicle.
