Hi Erwin,

Your colour rendition , sharpness and composition are great but I think this is the Lilac Breasted Roller and not a bee eater.

Hi Erwin. This is a very colourful Bee eater. I like the detail and the colours in the feathers , which you have taken with sharp focusing. I like the way your POV looks up at the bird. well done TFS.

Nice shot on a nice bird, it lacks a bit focus, and the crop is a bit tight imho, otherwise..i wish i was in SA shooting pics :)

Hi Erwin,

A very beautiful bird with the most amazing colors. The lilac is fantastic. Excellent details of the face, eye and feathers. I love the pose and the setting. I would like to see a bit more sky above the head.


Hello Erwin
a nice catch of this roller, i like his colorful plumage, his great pose and his long tail
this shot is well composed with wonderful blue sky
Have a good night
