Photographer's Note

While driving through Etosha National Park, the quest for rhinos and elephants eventually leads us to bird watching, after spotting one of the most beautiful feathered thing I have ever seen.

It's called Lilac Breasted Roller and the species ranges more or less continuously throughout eastern and southern Africa from the Red Sea coasts of Ethiopia and northwest Somalia to the Angola coast and northern South Africa.

If approached very carefully, it's surprising how close you can get, although you're not supposed to get out of the car in case a lion would hang around.
