Lilac-breasted Roller, Coracias caudata

This series was hampered because it had to be taken against the light, and very

harsh light at that. Luckily, the roller needed quite a lot of time to handle its prey, throwing it up, catching and gradually demolishing it before swallowing. This gave me some time to try out several camera adjustments. Nevertheless I had to delete most shots...
