Again, not sure of the species, but wonderful colours. I caught it just as it turned to face into the sun and then took off. If anybody knows the species, please do let me know. African again I think.

Edit: I understand it's actually a Lilac Breasted Roller. Pretty little fella ain't he?

I agree with John, a lilac-breasted roller it is! And a beautiful image too, you have caught the light on it perfectly. Great work.

Thanks guys. No saturation applied, although I did think I could have applied some... am interested in any thoughts?
