This again is the Lilac Breasted Roller at London Zoo.
Housed in the well designed African bird enclosure, I managed to get about 20 very pleasing shots.

is a link to yesterdays post of this colourful bird, with notes.

Thanks for looking

Hi Alan
Top picture, nice pose, wish they sit this still in the veldt. always ready to fly of as soon as one wants to stop. One of my favourite birds, always on my wishlist for another shot.

Excelent capture of the Roller. Your exposure is just right, one more fstop, it would have been cooked.
Excelent work and well done on this composition.

What a stunning bird, and perfect photo of him, Alan. Extremely well composed and shown. (Have you found the elusive web site that teaches us how to get this quality pose, and not shared it with the rest of us?)
Thank you.

Hello Alan,

Yesterdays post was brilliant but I favour this one. Stunning colors and sharp details. Pose of the bird is great and you've composed the photo very well. Did you shoot through a fence? Well done my friend.

Regards,
Pieter

Alan, Another great shot of your roller..I think I prefer the former post over this one..The light is a tiny bit harder here IMO..Thanx!

Very good shot Alan!
The POV and composition are perfect.
This fellow is really beautiful and he did a great job posing for you ;-)
I like it very much, though I would maybe add some contrast.
Well done!

Colourful bird!
Superb POV, well cropped, perfect DOF, and very good DOF, wich emphasize the subject.
A superb shot, TFS.

Ahhh, I think this is much better than your first effort. Classic pose and very nice composition. Nice OOF background to emphasise the beautiful plumage. Yes, this is much better.
