Lilac-breasted Roller - Rollier longs brins (Coracias caudatus)

In QENP. We had some fun with this little guy, as it was perched high on a tree top and we couldn't get a good photo, then it flew down and around us as we were leaving, then stopped on this tree stump, flew again, stopped and flew and stopped, playing until it decided to pose decently. Birds love to play... :)
