Great timing on this wonderful bird. The bird, nice trees and big blue sky make a great image. Great focus and colors of the bird. Nicely done.

absolutely brilliant, perfect timing
there is a tiny little bit of noise in the image
I see you are using ISO 800 with f:11, my personal choice would have been f:8 with ISO speed 400, shutter speed of 1/800 in any case perfect for action scenes.
GREAT PICTURE anyway

With superb timing and fine sharpness and natural colours this is a great capture of the Lilac-breasted Roller tossing his grasshopper prey.
The POV against the clear sky accentuates the scene well.
Thanks and kind regards,

the image is very bright, maybe the colours -however excellent- are a bit affected by this, but the timing is really exceptional.Focusing and composition are perfect, all the attention on this image is captured by the watchful and focused bird's eye.Truly noteworthy!
