I am always on the look out for reference material for animals and their behaviour for my designs and paintings. It can be such a distracting task with all the wonderful things to see on the internet! Having stumbled upon this picture I could not resist but reblog it. The photograph of this bird is stunning. It is a lilac breasted roller bird and the link takes you an article about the photograph by Dr Merrigan aged 75 years old. Click the image or the link below.
