photographing and learning about wildlife
I spotted this in the Kruger National Park, close to the Orpen rest camp. This is one of my favorite bird species, and are found throughout the Kruger National Park.
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. Lilac Breasted Rollers inhabit acacia country with well spaced trees, rolling bushy game lands, riverside areas and cultivated land, but they do not associate with human habitation. http://www.krugerpark.co.za/africa_lilac...
