Gorgeous.
Where was this?
Looks a lot like the lilac-breasted rollers of East Africa.
I never even heard of a roller before the spring.

Hi Scott,

Southern Africa and fairly common. They are real gems for sure.

Does this bird have any feet?? Very nice, strong composition here. Bird's colors and the creamy bg work wonders! -Mike



Yup. Somewhere in that ball of fluff.

I agree with all the others- an excellent shot of an extremely lovely bird.
Having only one eye must really complicate its hunting (they ARE hunters, aren't they?)
But this guy is apparently surviving.

Yup. I will post another for u! Was a shot because I really was waiting for a nice pose and then I got a look at the other side. Wow. Must be a challenge for it to find food maybe or maybe not.
