Lilac-breasted Roller
Photographer: Andrea Popick
Location: Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, Africa
While on my first safari, I was hoping to get photos of beautiful birds and some shots of them in flight. I was lucky and in the right place at the right time. As I was taking the photo, this beautiful Lilac-breasted Roller flew off the branch and a I was able to capture it in flight.
