About Indian Roller from wikipedia:

The Indian Roller (Coracias benghalensis), was formerly locally called the Blue Jay. It is a member of the roller family of birds.It is not migratory, but undertakes some seasonal movements.

The Indian Roller is a stocky bird, the size of a Jackdaw at 30-34cm. It has a warm brown back, lilac breast and face, and blue crown, wings, tail and belly. Sexes are similar, but the juvenile is a drabber version of the adult.

Indian Roller is striking in its strong direct flight, with the brilliant blues of the wings contrasting with the brown back.

Hi Sanjoy,
Lovely image of this Indian Roller, amazing colours, with very good detail, But I feel its a little lost with all the space around it, other then that great work, all the best Cheers Rick :)

Nice POV, nicely cropped, leaving sufficient dept and space. Noise a bit high.
Best regards

Sanjoy, another awesome capture - crystal clear and well composed. bravo and thanks for sharing. Mark :)
