Indian Roller (Coracias benghalensis), in flight

I went out in the morning to Hessarghatta lake (it’s all dried up now) hoping to catch some raptor in flight. Didn’t have much luck on the raptor front but managed to chance upon this Roller though.

As I had mentioned in an earlier post, I have been trying to click a roller without having it perched on an electric wire. All my previous efforts hadn’t yielded much success. So today was indeed a lucky day.
Honestly speaking would have liked to compose this picture a bit differently but now I guess I am getting too greedy. My prayers have already been answered – a roller without a wire in the frame 🙂

My wife has been encouraging me to click some birds in flight so as to bring some variation to my collection. So this one goes out to her.
