I've decided to post another shot of the Lilac Breated Roller from London Zoo.
Here you can see just how happy he is singing in the sunshine.

You can view notes and previous images of this bright colourful bird

Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend

Encore une belle photo bien réalisée pour cet oiseau sur sa branche. Jolies couleurs, bon point de vue et bonne netteté grâce à la profondeur de champ bien maitrisée.
Very Well Done !

Another nice shot Alan. Looks like an oil painting. Just perfect. I do love the colour of thier plumage. Great thanks.

Hi Alan, beautiful composition with fine background and nice pose. Very good colors. A wee bit over sharpened IMO.
Good work.

Hello Alan,

This is one more fantastic picture of this very beautiful bird. Pose is excellent and I really like the fact (s)he is having her/his beak open. Composition is wonderful and the catchlight in the eye is very good. I also love the blurred BG. Well done & TFS!


Alan, its a lovely bird and the composition is very nice. Like the pose and POV. The colors looks a bit unsaturated and I did a WS. Did you use shadows & highlights? Please let me what you think. Well done.

Alan, so he's here again, and that's great.

He's very beautiful, and you did a great job on all of the shots.


What beautiful colouring and clarity. I especially enjoy that the beard is singing here.
