Hi Christian
This is a very nice capture of this Lilac-breasted roller and well presented.
I like your composition/POV, the colours are stunning, the details are fine, and the lighting/exposure was very well managed. In my opinion, the only nit might be the slight noise that is noticeable in the sky. I have prepared a workshop to address this aspect. I hope you like it.
Well done and TFS.
Regards
Loot

"This attractive bird is one of the most commonly seen of the Rollers. An inhabitant of dry open brush and wooded areas, it perches prominently on bushes, trees and fence poles. It preys on lizards and invertebrates but is also known to take small birds. Lilac-breasted Rollers are also quite unbothered by people, allowing you to get very close in for a good shot"..:)

Christian,

Good colours and Composition. Excellent clear Bg which enhances the colours on the subject. As with the first one... Well Done and TFS,
Sheriff

Muy buenas
Una bonita carraca, aunque la foto tiene quizás un poco de ruido.
Un saludo
