The Lilac-breasted Roller, a bird of beautiful colours. They are normally quite happy to let you photograph them, as this one was.

  1. Ah yes, these kingfishers… We have them too in m country. We call them “Yalıçapkını” how can I translate I don’t know, but it means, “yalı” water side residence and “çapkın” means casanova… 🙂 It is funny but they named like that… Dear Rob, I loved them all, what a beautiful colours, great photographs. Thank you, with my love, nia
