I had captured this picture of 'Lilac Breasted Roller' (Coracias caudatus) in Kruger National Park during the time of returning home after morning game drive.

It looks like an immature Roller. But still you could see beautiful colours in its plumage. They are common roadside bird in KNP

Hi Srikumar. A beautiful composition with the perfect pose of this roller, excellent details and colors. I do not understand the poor match to the real of the group of leaves on the right, maybe you've changed the color of the background and the work did not go out to perfection.Have a nice WE and thanks,Luciano

Hello Srikumar,
Rollers always make a great subject because of their gorgeous plumage, this particular bird is no exception. A real beauty, showing an array of pastel colors as well as fine detail. Great eye contact and very good exposure considering the harsh lighting you had to deal with.

really nice capture and great composition, greetings Ori
