Lilac Breasted Roller in Sunrise Light

Beautiful Lilac Breasted Roller bird in flight with wings spread. Ndutu, Tanzania, Africa.
The lilac breasted roller bird is a difficult bird to photograph in flight. It flies quickly and erratically. While standing in the safari vehicle we drove and scanned for the bright, beautiful blue colors of the roller bird. Trying not to disturb the bird we would drive to as close as we dared. Then we waited for the bird to fly. I was rewarded with this flight shot in early sunrise light which casts a unique hue of colors.
