Lilac Breasted Roller

lilac breasted roller

During our epic vacation we spent about three months in Africa and during that time we were fortunate enough to go on a number of safaris or game drives as they are often called. While the “Big 5” get most of the attention there are always a ton of amazing animals to spot.

The Lilac Breasted Roller was one of the more impressive birds we saw in both Kenya and Botswana. This photo was taken at the Chobe National Park. The roller is a small bird that always seemed to be on the go so I feel very lucky to have gotten such a decent shot of one.
