Lilac-Breasted Roller Eye Contact

Lilac-Breasted Roller Eye Contact

Another photo of the beautiful Lilac-Breasted Roller, from South Africa. This time we have eye contact, and a nice frontal pose that interacts with the tree on the left.

Thank you Estee for making this beautiful trip with me!

What do I like about this photo? The pose, with direct eye contact. The colors, contrasting nicely between the Roller, the tree its standing on, and the background. The composition, using the rule of thirds, contrasts the Roller with the tree. I used an open aperture to have a shallow depth of field, so the Roller is in focus, the tree less so, and the background is completely blurred out. This points the interest at the Roller first, then the tree.

What would I want to improve? Better lighting, preferably from the back, would have done magic. Spreading the wings would have been even better :)
