Default Lilac Breasted Roller

Sighted this Lilac Breasted Roller at South Luangwa, Zambia.
One of the most beautiful birds I have seen.




Thanks for C&C.

Prabir,

Just took a closer look at this shot. Do you know what the winged insects are that are about halfway down the right branch?

Ordo, JJ, Saly, Mole - thanks for your appreciation.
JJ, I also saw these insects, but don't know the name.
