Indian Roller

Indian Roller: Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur, India, March 2023 — One of my most hoped for birds when I travel east to Europe, Africa, and not Asia, is the roller. European Roller in Europe – Lilac-breasted, Purple, and Broad-billed in Africa – Indian here in India. I have not had what I would call a good photo opp (the birds we saw yesterday were wee and far, as they say, but this will do for a start 🙂 Such blue! Cropped and enlarged in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. ISO 1000 @ f4 @ 1/500th. Plus 1.3EV (because the birds were perched against the sky before they flew).
