15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Bull's Eye

We stopped to photograph a herd of Buffalo when we noticed a Lilac Breasted Roller standing on a post not far from us. I wanted to catch the roller in flight, but it didn't show any interest in flying. I told the driver we can go, and just as the driver started driving, the roller took off. I tried to follow it with my camera while the car was moving, and I was lucky enough to get a shot of it right between the buffalo's horns.
