Description: Kenya's National Bird, the lilac-breasted roller, squawking in the brush of the Maasai Mara.

Story from behind the lens: Driving through the brush in search of big cats, we almost missed this little beauty, the lilac-breasted roller, if not for his loud, somewhat hard squawking. He stopped as we stopped along side to pose for this portrait for just a few seconds, then flitted off again.
