[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The violet-breasted roller (Coracius caudatus)is arguably the most beautiful passerine bird in all of Africa. Here it is in its favorite position...at the end of a branch from where it spots insects and scorpions. I photographed this one in the Etosha Natural Park but saw
them throughout Namibia. Each time it was a beauty to behold!
