[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
This Lilac Breasted Roller was sitting on a branch, allowing me to take shot after shot at him. And then, he decided to give me the full view, and a lucky shot!

It was an overcast day in the Kruger park, with not many animals around, but this made it worth it.

Hola Esmarie: Bienvenido a TN! The coloring of the bird is wonderful, me not to have done something with this blue tone so soft and beautiful, the details of its tail remind me to a bird that I saw the last year in the forest, this to give a touch of magic bird. the plumage is as a fan. I think that the contrast is perfect in gray, so that the blue tones of the sky, in this occasion didn't compete with that of the plumage of the bird in the composition. I have a lot of pleasure for this bird never seen by my, I will add it to my favorite ones to frequently enjoy it, a lot of success in your future photographic publications. Cordial greetings. *Ninfa Urania*

A breath-taking display of this gorgeous bird with the stunning colors. What good timing, Esmarie. Great job, and a warm welcome to TN. Thank you for sharing. : )

Hi Esmarie

Welcome to TN.

It is a shame the quality of this image is not so good. I have never seen a photo of one of these beautiful birds in flight. The plumage colours are outstanding and to see the wings fully extended is a wonderful sight.

Welcome to TN.

Very good attempt to capture this species in flight. Its slightly blurred, but so what, its the first time I've seen it in flight and all its details are reproduced quite nicely. Beautiful colours and I didn't realise they had such long outer tail feathers. Well done.

Welcome to TN Esmarie. Lovely bird. Great pose. It is a bit blurred but a nice first one.

Nice Action shot. Pity that at 1/1000 sec it is still blurred. Did you use a bean bag of tripod of any sort? Often it is very difficult to keep the long lenses still. Nice shot and welcome to TN! Sheriff

les couleurs de l'oiseau sont assez belles mais dommage pour le ciel gris.laurent

Excellent opportunist shot. Great composition and excellent colours. The focus is a tad soft. Did a workshop to fix it.

Welcome to TN (Did you not get a nice shot of a Rhino recently, maybe you should post it)

Hi Bly om te sien jy is op.

Baie mooi.
