Description

Lilac breasted rollers are a favorite photo subject for visitors to East Africa, but I was looking for a less familiar image. I found what I was looking for in the Ruaha National Park, Tanzania in early November. We watched as the male roller handed his trophy off to his appreciative mate. What made it especially cool was the date, November 4, which happens to be the date of our own wedding anniversary. The running joke between my wife and I is now whether she would like another centipede, or something new for her next anniversary. I took the image with a Canon EOS 7D Mark II, with a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS II USM les. The exposure settings were 1/500, f/8, ISO 100, focal length 400 mm, hand held.
