Wildlife photography of a Lilac-Breasted Roller perched on a stump in the Mashatu Bush Camp in Botswana

Watching for a meal of large passing insects, a Lilac-Breasted Roller perches ready on a gnarled stump in the Mashatu Bush Camp of Botswana. This brilliantly plumed bird bursts into an explosion of color when it launches after prey. Mashatu Game Preserve sits at the point where Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe come together in wonderous biodiversity.
