The Lilac-breasted Roller is found from Natal to Ethiopia. Mosilikatze, king of the Matabele reserved its feathers for his exclusive use. Its blue wings are particularly beautiful in flight.

Nice separation from the background and good eye contact...john
Great looking bird. I have seen them up close over in South Africa and there wings are really amazing as you say. Great Picture.
Beautiful bird. It looks like there is an issue with focusing here however. Most of the focus is centred on the foliage below and not on the bird. When shooting birds close up concentrate on the head. In close ups like this it is far more important to get the head in focus. It is also quite noisy. Some kind of noise reduction software would help here or simply isolate the bird and some of the fore vegetation and blur the rest slightly.
Hi Averil by far one of my favourite birds to see in the Kruger, if you look at the top of the head the shot looks over exposed, you did get a nice catchligh on the eye so I think your aim was on the head, if you haven't got the software to correct the exposure I would be tempted to under expose the shot in the camera - especially on bright, sunny days, if you can take a test shot first and look at the histogram of the shot - if it is under exposed the histrogram would be more to the left, over exposure would show on a thin line on the right rather then a even exposure thoughout the histogram - hope this helps - regards Ina
