Lilac breasted Roller

By MikeRC
Hi...this is a shot of one of my favourite birds..the Roller, very colourful in all it's various plumages.
This one was taken at Chester zoo a few weeks ago.
It was obviously in a cage and I have altered the background somewhat in an attempt to make it worthy of posting.

I intend posting another Roller shot tomorrow the second one taken in Goa last week.

I hope you like them both.

Thanks for looking and thanks for your clicks and comments.

kind regards....Mike
