[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo at the iMfolozi Game Park.Rollers are mainly insect eaters and some carching their prey on the wing, also diving from a perch and snatching food from the ground.They nest in unlined holes in trees and lay 2 to 3 aggs.The white eggs hatch after about 17 to 20 days and the young remain in the nests for about another 30 days.

Hi Erwin,
A superb Nature shot with this bird carrying its prey between its long beak. A very sharp image against a lovely blue sky. Perfect light and such impeccable details.
Well done for this interesting crop.
My best regards,

Great nature shot, interesting scene, perfect sharpness and light, well done

Good morning Erwin,

I love the details you have captured in the plumage. Your opening provided an excellent depth of field.
Lescouleurs of the bird are very similar to that of the sky,
There is some noise but it is not too annoying.

Excellent POV You have entered a beautiful snapshot.
Splendid light and environment.
Very well done:
