Lilac Breasted Roller
Spectacular Aerial Tumbler
In 2008 we first visited the dark continent of Africa. It was a mysterious place with exotic animals. But we were stunned by the variety, beauty and creativity of everything!But this bird stood out! It was perched conspicuously in the open woodlands, chasing insects for food and those aroused by bush fires.
Our photo highlights the white face, the rusty cheeks, the lilac throat and breast. In flight it shows electric blue wings' The spectacular aerial tumbling is for courtship and mating. They breed in swift flight which is called "a flight on the wing."
Cathy loves to speak of God's exquisite paint brush every time we encounter one. Look at what God can do!
Those who live in America should consider watching for the hummingbirds. Their migration comes through the Mid-South area in September. They are beautiful. See God's handiwork and be encouraged.
