Bird I found on Image search (Exotic) (1 Viewer)

Hi, I found this bird in image search, I wasn’t searching for any particular bird, this one stood out the most because of its unique colours and the shape, I haven't seen this bird before on the image section and I was wondering if anyone knew what it was called, I looked at the site it was hosted on but no names where given.

Yes, lilac-breasted roller - the classic East-African-safari bird. The colours in that photo are oversaturated - the real thing is garish but not that garish.
