Lilac Breasted Roller, Maasai Mara, KenyaTechnical Specs
Sony A1, 200-600mm Sony lens with a 1.4 teleconverter, f8 at 2000th of a second, and burst rate of 30 frames/second.A little about this image...
This lilac breasted roller kept flying off, but returning to the same perch. So I focused on the branches and waited, and waited, and waited, until I had a split second to capture his landing. The 30 frames/second burst rate of the Sony A1 camera helped to make it possible, but it all happened in the blink of an eye.
