Lillac Breasted Roller

I got a snap of this guy at the London Zoo last year. The Lillac Breasted Roller is an african bird, quite commonly found when you go on safari.

This trip to the zoo was a great improvement from previous years when they didn't have any open enclosures. The zoo's concept now is to allow people to get closer to the animals - less cages, more glass and more enclosures you can enter. There's one for the birds, and another for the monkeys.

Tip: you can get a much better ticket price if you collect Tesco vouchers. Instead of exchanging them for £5 off food purchases, they give you £20 off zoo entrance fees.

Great shot considering the focal length and shutter speed. Must have been a very bright day to get this much light at 1/4000

Nice
